We believe that fresh and healthy home cooking should be convenient, accessible, and affordable for everyone. And by everyone, that includes the 1 in 8 people in cities across America who suffer from food insecurity and live in food deserts. We started Sooma because we know there has to be a sustainable and scalable way to solve this issue, and we think we’ve found it!
Food Insecurity. The inability to get reliable access to affordable, nutritious food.
Food Desert. An urban area where it is difficult to buy affordable, quality, and fresh food
We sell our meal kits wholesale to community centers, schools, and religious institutions, and help them implement food assistance programs, such as SNAP, so they can easily sell fresh food to their communities.
This solution solves food insecurity by:
- Providing consistent access to quality fresh food while teaching people how to cook.
- Increasing the number and density of places in food deserts that sell fresh food.
- Working with our community partners, which are already trusted among the community, to teach about healthy food and nutrition habits.
This isn’t your typical buy-one-give-one model – a model that can actually have long-term negative impacts in the communities they serve. This is a product and service that is designed to meet the needs of our neighbors suffering from food insecurity.
But we need your help! By buying Sooma, you are not only getting a delicious meal, you’re also helping us expand our reach. Together, we can help create a world where all of us can eat well and be healthy!
