Every year in the United States, six billion pounds of perfectly good fruits and vegetables go to waste due to being "imperfect" or growing abundantly on the farm without a market to sell at or staff to harvest. There's other reasons food gets tossed or overlooked; 85% of our food waste is on the consumer end. Often, we throw away food because it’s been sitting out too long or we don’t know how to store it properly.
We're fighting food waste on all fronts by offering a Zero Food Waste share of foods that would normally be discarded, and providing culinary education of how to cook all parts of your vegetables from stem to leaf.
Help us eliminate food waste and make the most out of the labor and resources our farmers put into their harvest.
