What is Land & Ladle?
Land & Ladle is a mission-driven organization focused on building and promoting a more sustainable and equitable food system through education, marketing, community development and technology.
What We Care About
The future of our planet depends on sustainable food. Sustainable food innovations from alternative proteins and packaging to food waste reduction and products can help make our food system more sustainable and resilient.
Healthy food is a human right. Food has the power to uplift communities economically and socially, so we support innovative ways to ensure all people have the opportunity to eat healthfully and participate in the food economy.
Food is medicine. The link between mental and physical well being and food is clear, but research on personalized and functional foods is nascent. We aim to accelerate innovation for the betterment of human health.

Where We Focus
Local focus for global impact
We are focusing our attention on the Sacramento and Yolo region because we believe that this region, with its proximity to farms, the farm-to-fork capitol: Sacramento and the top minds in food and agriculture from University of California at Davis, has all the ingredients to lead the way in building sustainable and equitable food systems. The Yolo and Sacramento region is primed to lead California. California historically leads the nation, which in turn leads the globe. So while we focus locally, we aim for a global impact.
Program creation and development for the Davis Food Co-op and Davis Farm to School 3rd Grade food field trip.
Food Waste Entrepreneur Pipeline Program
Development of a Food Waste Entrepreneurship program in partnership with UCANR, The VINE, UCD food waste experts.
