We rescue our produce directly from farmers and wholesalers!
We place a higher value on rescuing produce from going to waste than where it's grown. During the growing season, we mostly source from local producers. When it's chilly outside or we can't source locally, we work with suppliers in warmer areas.
For example, our hometown of Baltimore sits just 20 miles north of Jessup, Maryland. Jessup is the produce hub of the Mid-Atlantic. From Whole Foods to juice companies, thousands of organizations are ordering into the hub. The big problem comes from the fact that often, they mis-order, reject whole pallets of food due to cosmetic imperfections, or the truck was late... so they buy from someone else and then 600 cases of avocados from Mexico are headed toward the landfill with no one to buy. This is where we come in!
