Our mission is to connect residents and businesses to local farming, closing the gap in our society between our food and where it comes from, and reducing food waste from entering our landfills.
The inspiration for starting R.City sprouted from the idea of creating a full-circle service by sending food waste to the same farmer that provides your produce. Our service began in 2013, here in the Phoenix Valley – where we have continued to pursue this mission over the past 8 years.
All of the food waste we collect goes directly to our farm where we compost it ourselves. We use the finished compost on our farm to grow produce (without the use of chemicals or pesticides). Our produce is then available for purchase – completing the full-circle of our service.
We look forward to continuing our journey to reduce food waste and connecting our community to local farmers.
