At Ritual, we talk a lot about bridging nutrient gaps in people’s diets. But that means we can’t overlook one of the biggest ones of all: While up to 40% of food is wasted in the US every year, more than 1 and 10 households are food insecure. That’s math we can’t get behind—which is why we’re a proud partner of Food Forward, a non-profit organization working to fight hunger and food waste in our backyard of Southern California.¹,²

Meet Food Forward

With the help of staff and thousands of volunteers across the Los Angeles area, Food Forward rescues fresh fruits and vegetables from backyard fruit trees, orchards, farms, farmers markets, and wholesale produce vendors, preventing this nutritious food from going to waste. This food is then reallocated to families in need through the over 350 local hunger relief organizations that Food Forward works with.

Our Partnership—and Your Impact

Supporting pregnancy, parenthood, and family health is a core part of who we are—which is why we’re eager to help households experiencing food insecurity. And that’s where our customers come in: Every new and recurring Ritual order containing our Essential Prenatal multivitamin, Essential Postnatal multivitamin, or Essential Protein Pregnancy & Postpartum will help donate four servings of food to a family in need.

In other words, your order can have an impact—not just on you on your own health, but on the health of our community and planet, too.

You’ve helped us donate over 4 million servings of healthy produce—and we’re just getting started.

Let’s continue making a difference, together.
