We give a cluck about fighting food waste.

Did you know that 40% of healthy grocery store food gets tossed into a landfill? That’s not okay. We know we can, and should, do better.

healthy-surplus

We pick up healthy surplus food from local grocery stores after food bank donations —
then load them into reusable coolers (like the kind used for picnics, but bigger).

chicken-feed-updated

We turn that healthy surplus grocery food into nutrient-dense chicken feed that mimics their natural diet.

local-grocer

You buy the chicken at your local grocer
and feed your family great-tasting chicken and combat climate change from your kitchen. Winner, winner!

Good for Planet.

Our chickens are raised on a diet that includes ingredients made with nutritious surplus grocery food. That means when you choose to cook with our chicken, you become a part of something bigger — fighting food waste and climate change at the same time.

Each of our delicious Do Good Chickens stops approximately 4lbs of  surplus groceries from being thrown away, thus reducing nearly 3lbs of greenhouse gases (CO₂e).

That’s a lot of weight off the world’s shoulders.

Why buy Do Good Chicken?

Besides enjoying great-tasting, wholesome chicken, your purchase helps to:

End food waste.

If you eat just one package of our chicken per year, you’ll stop a pound of food from going to waste. And if you’re a normal U.S. consumer, you eat an average of 98 pounds of chicken a year. Imagine that impact!

Combat climate change.

We are the first U.S. chicken brand to combat-climate change. We created a closed-loop system where surplus food isn’t going to waste. Instead, it goes into nourishing chickens, with the potential to significantly  reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Keep you and your family healthy.

Chicken is delicious. When you purchase Do Good Chicken, you can eat what you love and feel great about every bite. Plus, our chicken is 100% natural — no antibiotics, no added hormones or steroids. Just cage-free chickens raised in the U.S.
