Our Mission is to fill community requests, as nominated by a dealer or vendor member of Strata GPO, on a local, regional and national scale through the contribution of foodservice equipment and supplies, as well as funding for capital purchases and other needs.

Donate inventory off of a current wish list.

Our members are encouraged to nominate a deserving non-profit.



What is Cooking Up Better Lives?

Cooking Up Better Lives was founded by the foodservice group purchasing organization, Strata GPO in 2007. In collaboration with dealer and vendor members, Cooking Up Better Lives seeks to improve the functionality, efficiency and value of community-based non-profit programs. It is the vision that shelters, homes, hospitals and other community-based entities in need of foodservice products or funds, have the opportunity to receive and leverage such contributions.


Our Purpose

Cooking Up Better Lives provides an organized and national coordinating body for the foodservice industry to streamline, leverage and market – giving opportunities to those most in need. Ultimately, our dealer and vendor members around the nation advance in corporate good and social responsibility.
