How Good Eggs is Changing the Future of Local Food

Farm-to-table. Local. Organic. Sustainable. For those interested in responsible eating, the buzzwords alone can be impossible to navigate (let alone the process of actually procuring good food). Enter Good Eggs, a San Francisco startup that’s about to change the way we think about food. Good Eggs connects farmers and foodmakers with consumers in their own communities. This means bread, eggs, produce, jam, pies, even baby food. If you can eat it, you can find it from a local producer through the marketplace at Good Eggs. You can also figure out how to cook it on their blog, The Eater’s Digest, and find farmers’ markets and other food events in your ‘hood. [pullshow] Since sharing and eating are the two things we love more than anything here at TaskRabbit HQ, it didn’t take us long to become converts. We’re also extremely honored that TaskRabbits are helping Good Eggs make such swift progress toward a very noble vision.

How Are You Celebrating Sandwich Club Today?

We’ll be celebrating by shoving greasy, gooey, delicious Philly cheesesteaks into our faces. [pullthis]Now, we’re not going to take sides in the whole provolone vs. Cheez Whiz Debate.[/pullthis] We’re not even going to offer an opinion on raw vs. cooked onions. And peppers? Well, you’re on your own for that decision. [pullshow]What we are going to do, however, is let you in on our favorite cheesesteak joints in San Francisco. We love The Cheesesteak Shop, Jake’s Steaks, and Metro Caffe (with tater tots on the side, naturally). In case you missed the banh mi kickoff last week, the mission of Sandwich Club is to eat sandwiches. We’ll be carrying out this mission all month long using the exclusive-to-San Francisco Deliver Now feature on the free TaskRabbit iPhone app. Wanna join us? San Franciscans who use Deliver Now for sandwich delivery four times will receive the 5th delivery on us. That’s a pretty tasty deal.

Task of the Week: Be My Personal Chef

Wouldn’t it be great to have a personal chef? If someone else was chopping the kale and searing the salmon and toasting the quinoa, eating well would be so easy. Hey, it worked for Oprah. For an affordable alternative to having a full-time chef on your payroll, make like Olivia M. and hire a TaskRabbit to prepare your meals. Olivia wanted to commit to healthy eating but knew she’d never have enough time to make the meals herself. That’s why she hired TaskRabbit Nicholas P., a chef who’s worked in multiple Michelin-starred kitchens. Nicholas designed a menu just for Olivia including seven tasty meals with high protein, no carbs, and plenty of veggies. Whether you’re looking to lose a few pounds, gain a little more energy, or justify eating a giant cheesesteak for lunch, try posting a cooking Task today.
