Founded in 2017, Rethink is a non-profit organization built on one simple mission – to create a sustainable and equitable food system. For the past 3 years, Rethink has utilized food excess from restaurants, grocery stores, and corporate kitchens to create new and nutritious meals for those in need. Research shows that about 40% of the food produced in America today goes to waste; this is equivalent to 70 billion tons. Over 42 million people are facing hunger in the United States, but there is enough to feed everyone – Rethink is working to make this happen.
Rethink Certified is Rethink’s initiative to utilize restaurants to feed those impacted by food insecurity at all times, including during times of crisis. This is a model that commenced in New York City in response to COVID-19, with plans to roll out nationally in summer 2020. Rethink Certified establishes a national infrastructure we need to feed those impacted by food insecurity at all times, as well as saves businesses and jobs during times of crisis.
Rethink Blind Hiring Policy
Rethink is committed to building an inclusive and diverse team. One way we enforce that is through our participation in a blind hiring process platform. Through this technology, all candidates’ background information is hidden or replaced by ambiguous words that strip their submission of any implication of race, gender, religion, etc. By doing this, we give each applicant a fair opportunity based on their merit. We believe this practice will eliminate the possibility of any unfair hiring practices, but it will also bring in the best talent from all walks of life. Please note we are only accepting resumes and applications through this site.
