Project Description

 

Our Mission

 

Third Shift Bites produces ready to eat gluten free and vegan meals that are made more accessible for late night shift workers. Our meals consist of soups, curries and salads using seasonal produce from local organic farms in California and fair-trade spices from Diaspora.

We are driven to make real food more accessible and to provide a positive impact on the health and well-being of our late-night shift working community.


The Problem We Are Solving

 

Research from the CDC and OSHA show that health risks of working night shift include poor digestive issues, heart disease, stress, poor eating habits, more illness and less physical activity. Late night workers are less likely than others to eat a regular nutritious diet because they no longer have the routine of preparing meals with their families and vending machines may be their only source of food at work when cafeterias and restaurants close.

By producing gluten free and vegan ready to eat meals available late at night we are giving people a healthier alternative to junk food.

When building our menu, we keep the late-night worker in mind making sure to not only produce low processed foods that are easy to digest but naturally filling, contain a healthy amount of protein and above all, is tasty.

 

Giving Back to the Community

 

We are going to set aside a percentage of our net sales to help frontline workers get the much-needed TLC they deserve. 

We will use that money to host wellness gatherings focused on learning and adopting new healthy habits as well as be a soft restart from the stress of working late nights and in the medical field. 

We want to give back to those who constantly put themselves last and others first.

The Market Size and Opportunity

The late-night shift community consists of hospitality staff, hospital workers, police officers, Muni drivers, and many others who keep our city running while others sleep.

Why We Are Seeking Funding

Third Shift Bites to date has zero debt and would like to continue building our business to help others eat healthier but needs a little help to get to the next stage. With your donation we will be able to hire a kitchen team for fair livable wages, purchase organic produce, environmentally friendly packaging, Fair-Trade spices from Diaspora and marketing.

 

With Gratitude

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our business and mission. With your contribution we hope to make the late-night shift more bearable, if not just healthier.

The Campaign FAQs

What will happen if you do not reach your funding goal?

If the funding goal is not reached, we will still be able to provide the rewards to our backers and we will continue to self-fund or explore other financing options. 

What if I cannot financially afford to contribute?

While monetary contributions are preferred at this time, you can still help out the campaign by spreading awareness! Share this company with any friends and family members who might be interested in donating or purchasing a reward. You can also follow Third Shift Bites on Instagram @thirdshiftbitesllc

Is my contribution tax-deductible?

No, your donation is greatly appreciated and will help us to achieve our business goals, but we are not a registered charity and cannot provide tax receipts.

What if I would like to contribute more money but am interested in a particular reward?

There is an option to donate an open value amount (see homepage). You can always purchase a specific reward and then add on any additional amount through the open value reward.

What if I want to give my reward to someone else?

That's awesome! Let us know who you'd like to gift it to when we contact you for fulfillment details (including the email address of the recipient), and we'll take it from there.

When can I expect my products to arrive?

Rewards for services will be connected with the provider by end of our fundraiser. You will then be able to schedule your service directly from that specific provider.
