Heartfoods Community Farms utilize food waste to transform how local communities grow healthy food.
We recycle the energy, nutrients, water and carbon from local food waste to create a robust organic fertilizer to grow nutritious foods indoors, year-round.
In exchange for food waste, ripe healthy food is harvested and delivered the same day to HeartFoods partners and customers, including:
Restaurants, Hospitals, Elder Care Facilities Universities, Schools, Grocery Stores Commercial Kitchens, Food Trucks, Home Delivery Services
The current global food supply chain creates food waste.
HeartFoods Community Farms touches on all four parts of the world’s food system that must be transformed:
Production, Processing, Distribution and Consumption

HeartFoods is a design-build-operate entity contracting with customers to build their own net zero, food waste to food production farms in any location or climate worldwide.
We design and build the farm facility, including the equipment, set-up and start-up operations.
We train the local operational staff in food waste collection and processing, grow room production, and produce harvesting and distribution.
We provide on-going monthly supply of biological additives and operational support via remote monitoring and controls.
