Imperfect


For us this is a story about finding creative ways to reduce food waste. Imperfect is the latest venture launched by Ben Simon and Ben Chesler. We ve been passionate about food waste for a long time always with the same goal in mind Keep food from being wasted and provide it to people instead.rn rnIt all started when we launched the Food Recovery Network in 2011 to recover leftover food from campus dining halls. After 700000 pounds of food recovered and 150 college campuses we began looking for ways to have an even bigger impact. And we found it on farms where 20% of the produce grown never makes it to a human mouth in large part because it is simply the wrong shape size or color. rn rnWe realized that across the country ugly produce (or as we like to say cosmetically challenged produce ) is being treated like a second class citizen. Every year six billion pounds of fruits and vegetables go to waste on farms across the U.S. just for looking a little different from other produce. Instead of going to feed people all that wasted produce is sitting in landfills where it releases methane gas into the atmosphere.rn rnSo we came up with the idea to reduce this food waste while making produce more affordable for all families. We ve teamed up on this project with Ron Clark who has worked for the California Association of Food Banks for the last 15 years sourcing ugly produce to keep it from going to waste. rn rnImperfect gives consumers the chance to buy delicious wonky looking produce at a discount. So instead of going to waste all those odd looking fruits and vegetables will be helping Americans eat healthier at a price they can afford. rn rnWe re excited to start this journey and we would love for you to join us.

But on trips with little time to prepare Denis often ended up eating uninspiring pre packaged camp meals that didn t do much for his energy levels or his digestive system (we know you ve been there).

This framework helps businesses produce high quality seafood and become more economically stable. It also encourages high quality research on fisheries supports innovative solutions driving change in the aquaculture sector and provides a way for communities to continue applying and deepening their knowledge of local ecosystems.rnrnThe model behind Olazul resembles that of an incubator in that it helps develop skills and create economic opportunities for fishermen to ensure the long term sustainability of their ocean based livelihoods. The organization runs projects around the world but each targets the most destructive activities and creates alternative production systems through aquaculture. For instance one project is in the sustainable livelihood development of ornamental fish in Indonesia. Rather than destroying corals with cyanide fishing coastal communities protect them as a way to grow fish for the aquarium trade. This project will reinforce ecological conservation and provide employment opportunities for both men and women

The Community Markets Purchasing Real and Affordable (Compra)


United States of America

Community Markets Purchasing Real and Affordable (COMPRA) Foods is a purchasing cooperative project that creates an alternative food distribution system for small grocers and convenience stores in food desert neighborhoods in Los Angeles. There is currently a large disconnect in the food system in these communities. Small food retailers in the Promise Zone often source their food products from big box grocers paying full price for these products and then marking them up for sale in their own establishments. This often occurs because entrepreneurs lack relationships with distributors who can deliver produce to their businesses at wholesale prices. Small and mid size farmers who may be interested in selling their produce directly to these establishments also lack the relationships and efficient distribution systems that can connect them to the hundreds of stores in low income food deserts.This service gap between growers distribution companies and small food retailers impacts low income consumers tremendously.
