At PROPER PLATE CO., we believe everyone deserves a proper meal. More than 37 million people in the United States wonder where their next meal will come from, while malnourishment affects one in four people globally. Food insecurity is right at our doorstep–but a way to help might be there too.
We believe that by weaving philanthropy into the fabric of corporate goals we can help reduce these numbers and make an impact as a for-profit company. The data is clear: it can cost as little as 1% of your Proper Plates purchase to ensure that someone in need receives a week of nutritious meals.
That’s why PROPER PLATE CO. is making a commitment that 1% of our gross revenue will go towards fighting hunger and food insecurity. Not just during a certain window. Not on specific products. All the time.
WHERE DO DONATIONS GO?
PROPER PLATE CO. was founded by two LA natives, so we’re passionate about donating locally where we know we can make an impact. That’s why our first round of donations will go to The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank who works to source, acquire, and distribute food and other products to those in need.
