Hungry Harvest is Collecting ‘Ugly Produce’ from South Jersey Farmers
Hungry Harvest is making its way to South Jersey to collect ugly fruits and vegetables in order to reduce waste and feed the hungry within our communities.
According to CBS Philly, Hungry Harvest came to Philadelphia last October, adding 500 local businesses to help the cause.
The company was created because produce that is deemed undesirable end up in the trash versus being sold in stores. Perfectly fine to eat food becomes waste just because of its appearance. Hungry Harvest aims to reduce this waste, by collecting it and reselling it at an affordable rate.
Harvest boxes start at $15 and include 8 pounds of produce delivered to your doorstep. For every box sold in NJ, produce is also being donated to 'Philabundance,' a hunger relief organization in Philadelphia.
Burlington County Times says delivery is available in: Cherry Hill, Moorestown, Haddonfield, Mount Laurel, Haddon Township, Haddon Heights, Audubon, Oaklyn, Collingswood, and Maple Shade.
