            About Sifted :

            Jess Legge + Kimberly Lexow were masters of the 9 to 5 - working at a high-growth tech start-up, with one question: "Could the work lunch be better?"

            It's an expectation these days that work is hard and fast. But lunch doesn't have to be that way. Imagining an office where employees want to stick around and share a table of inspired food, Legge + Lexow founded Sifted in 2015.

            Since then we've delivered millions of meals to Fortune 500s + high-growth startups across the US. When COVID-19 hit, our clients needed a partner to help them manage their new normal. That's when we created our virtual team building experiences. Now as companies fully embrace the future of a flexible workplace, Sifted has become a comprehensive employee experience partner offering both in-office catering services + an extensive portfolio of engaging virtual experiences for distributed teams.

            We use 7 core truths as the framework of our employee engagement programs + team culture :
          • Good food is powerful
          • Simple food is the best food
          • We support regular people with big ideas
          • We make mistakes and evolve
          • We appreciate people's differences
          • We seek, listen and implement feedback quickly + enthusiastically
          • We are our clients' biggest fans
            Sifted kitchens are zero food waste with all food scraps being composted and all leftovers being donated everyday. Since launching our donation program, Sifted has donated over $3M in lunches to those who experience food insecurity in our 6 cities. We believe that as our company grows, so does our responsibility therefore we're constantly looking for ways to improve sustainability and protect our natural resources.
