“We are trashing our land to grow food that no one eats.”
Nathan Shaw is a Texas-born Coloradan who found his passion in a dumpster. After practicing professionally for four years in geology, his field of study, Nathan found his calling elsewhere. Learning he could eat like a king on what someone else threw away, he realized this social-environmental issue had a lot more implications than his own dinner. After turning his garage, and his friends’ garages, into a thriving underground grocery store, he decided to take his plan to the next level, teaming up with a non-profit with the potential to transform our most universal daily habit. When Nathan isn’t finding, giving or making food for his friends, you can find him on a mountain, in a garden, or trapezing downtown on his bike.

Meet the mind
behind Vindeket Foods
Healthy, organic, local foods belong to everyone.
People of all socio-economic statuses should have access to these foods. When we grow less and waste less, food is more affordable for everyone.

The action of contributing time or money for something proves its worth…
and is integral to re-establishing an accurate view on the value of our food and proper stewardship of our resources. With the dignity of "purchasing" food we can empower one another in the essential human need of taking care of our families. ​
What we stand by
Nothing created should be wasted.
All things - people, plants and animals - play a vital role in our ecosystem. ​

Food waste is our collective problem.
It does not belong to a single sector of society. Therefore, we all need to
be a part of the solution.

Food waste impacts civilization negatively on every level:
hunger, water scarcity, climate, diminishing resources, poverty, fossil fuel consumption, food prices, materialism and the death of historical, artisan food practices.

FOOD DATE LABELS
Vindeket Foods seeks to connect with the Fort Collins community, empowering individuals at any level in the socioeconomic structure to participate in the consumption of economically and environmentally sustainable foods.

A note about food dates.
Our dream is to see everyone standing together against wasted food redeeming the value of the food worker, plant, animal, fuel, and water.
Forty percent of all food the United States produces ends up in a landfill.

Vindeket Foods is rescuing this food before it reaches the trash and providing it for consumers.

Even with the diligent efforts of food banks and other volunteer food rescue programs in place, gross amounts of viable foods are being thrown away.
