Each year, 10 million pounds of food is wasted at farms for many reasons – some items are deemed unsellable because they do not meet consumers’ cosmetic standards, some are glut produce that the farmer cannot harvest or sell.
Through 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. In 2017, we tripled our shareholders to 126 and provided specialty local products such as maple syrup, organic bar soap, and tea. Check out photos of some of our 2018 UglyCSA shares below:
