Frequently Asked Questions

Our Product

What is in your chicken feed?

Our chicken feed is made with nutritious surplus grocery food, which we collect after community donations occur. We pick up all kinds of fresh food, from bagels to broccoli. After we create our animal feed, we pelletize it with a blend of vegetables (like corn and soy) that have traditionally been fed to chickens. Click over to our About page to see actual photos of the food we’re upcycling.

Are your chickens fed a vegetarian diet?

No, but chickens naturally eat a diet of meat, fruits, and vegetables. As one of nature’s foragers, chickens have always been omnivores that love to eat anything they can scratch up. A balanced diet is a good thing for chickens and for us — providing essential nutrients for good health.

Do you only sell chicken?

For now…but we don’t plan on stopping there. Our goal is to help the animal protein world reduce its impact on the environment. Follow our social channels for updates on our new and upcoming sustainable products.

Is your packaging recyclable?

Our chicken trays are made from rPET (otherwise known as recycled PET containers) and can be recycled at most municipal recycling centers.

Does your chicken taste different than less sustainable chicken?

Our chicken will not make you a better cook. But it will taste like any other high-quality chicken you buy at the supermarket. Ours is just a whole lot better for the world.

Our Mission

How can choosing Do Good Chicken help to end food waste?

With every Do Good Chicken you enjoy, you can help our planet because you keep nutritious food out of landfills.  Americans eat an average of 98 lbs of chicken a year–imagine the impact you can make just by putting Do Good Chicken in your cart. 

Shouldn’t the surplus grocery food go to food banks instead?

We only collect fresh surplus that is available after community donations occur. The food we use is fresh, healthy food that would have been thrown away and wasted. Instead, we collect it and upcycle it into chicken feed — because we believe good food should be eaten, never wasted.

How can chickens combat climate change?

We are the first U.S. chicken brand with verified carbon-reduced benefits. We upcycle the surplus grocery into a feed that goes into nourishing chickens and drastically reducing carbon emissions.

Why is Do Good Chicken the right choice for my family?

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% all natural — no antibiotics and no added hormones or steroids. Just cage-free chickens raised in the U.S. 

What do you believe is most important when raising chickens?

We believe in raising healthy animals that are free from antibiotics and grown in cage-free environments.  

We believe in providing our customers the highest quality chicken in the marketplace that is 100% all natural and free from added ingredients.

How can you work toward sustainability with so many injustices in the farming industry?

We believe animals should be humanely raised, which is why we choose to lead by example. Our suppliers follow the animal welfare guidelines established by the National Chicken Council. We believe in ensuring that the birds we raise are taken care of with the highest standards starting at hatch. 

Are you USDA-certified organic?

Since surplus groceries aren’t all organic, our chicken can’t be considered organic. As much as we’d love to feed chickens all-organic groceries, there simply isn’t enough organic surplus food and it would defeat our purpose of ending food waste. We do ensure our chicken is 100% all natural and free from antibiotics with no added antibiotics or steroids. 

For Grocers

Will this cost supermarkets money?

Not a penny. We’ll bring the reusable coolers and pick up your surplus groceries all for free. 

Will my shoppers really care?

Most likely. We sure do! Statistics show that 96 percent of people feel their own actions like donating, recycling, or buying ethically can make a difference — and over half believe that they personally can make a big difference.
