Each year, 10 million pounds of food is wasted at farms. Food goes to waste at farms for many reasons, some are deemed unsellable because they do not meet consumers’ cosmetic standards, some are glut produce that the farmer cannot harvest or sell.
The 412 Food Rescue’s UglyCSA program, we create new markets for previously unsellable produce–benefiting farmers and preserving the resources that went into food production. Our first UglyCSA program was piloted in 2016 in partnership with Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance. We look forward to expanding it in 2017.
