Globally Motivated

JEE Foods was founded through a class project in 2017 when students from Butler Tech/Ross High School were tasked by the United Nations to end hunger and poverty. Working with a team in South Korea, JEE Foods emerged as a viable solution to end poverty through our three seed approach.

Our Three Seed Approach

Jobs

JEE Foods provides on-the-job training in foodservice through our transformation efforts. In combination with our education seed, volunteers increase their employability skills.

Education

JEE Foods provides volunteers with education in food safety and industry credentials to increase their opportunity for future employment. 

Economy

By giving new life to rescued food, JEE Foods takes full advantage of the economic resources that went into growing the food. In order to truly break free from the poverty cycle, JEE Foods provides the opportunity for individuals to become self-sustainable, which will in turn spur the economy.
