About Sifted :

Jess Legge and 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 and Lexow founded Sifted in 2015.

Since then we ve delivered millions of meals to Fortune 500s and 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 and 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
