A new climate-forward food company, Do Good Foods, has launched Do Good Chicken in grocers throughout Philadelphia. The company said Do Good Chicken is "a simple, tasty, good-for-plate-and-planet option that helps fight food waste and combat climate change."

After community donations, Do Good Foods takes healthy surplus food from grocery stores and 'upcycles' it into nutrient-dense chicken feed that mimics a chicken’s natural diet. The chicken is then made available for purchase at those same markets, closing the loop and helping combat food waste. Each Do Good Chicken saves approximately four pounds of surplus groceries from being thrown away, thus preventing approximately three pounds of greenhouse gases, said the company.

“Food waste is a massive problem with approximately 40% of the food we grow in the US going to waste," said Justin Kamine, co-CEO and co-founder of Do Good Foods. "We believe this can be solved with what we are doing at Do Good Foods by upcycling surplus grocery food, creating a closed loop system, and providing accessible great tasting chicken to consumers."

"We are bringing real sustainability to scale and empowering everyone to be a part of the solution," he continued. “We’re thrilled to make our first retail market Philadelphia – also home to our very first production facility – giving everyone an easy way to Do Good and start making an immediate impact on our planet right from their own kitchen.”
