HERE'S HOW MUCH PRODUCE WE'LL RECOVER AND DONATE BECAUSE OF SHARK TANK
Jan 13, 2016
First of all, I would just like to thank everyone for the love and support from every corner of the country. Your kind words and messages inspire us to relentlessly pursue our dream of a hunger-free and waste-free US.
As many of you know, we exist to reduce food waste and feed hungry families.
Our model to accomplish this mission is a produce delivery service to weekly subscribers.
The more subscribers we have, the more food waste we prevent, and the more hungry families we can feed.
Since Shark Tank aired, we have had over 1,000 people sign up for our services nationwide in just 5 days.
Let's do some math. Each delivery, on average, reduces 10 pounds of produce from going to waste, and we donate 1.5 pounds of produce to the needy, per week. Multiply that by 1,000 - and we'll recover 10,000 pounds and donate 1,500 pounds of produce per week.
That's 43,000 pounds recovered and 6,450 pounds donated per month.
That's 520,000 pounds recovered and 78,000 pounds donated per year.
That's in just 5 days. And the signups keep coming in.
Sign up today to get an awesome box of produce delivered to your door. We currently deliver to the MD, DC, and Northern Virginia areas. Philadelphia will begin in a few weeks and NYC in 2-3 months.
Let's make a dent in the 6 billion pounds of fresh produce that gets tossed every year in the US. Help us feed the 50 million Americans that are food insecure.
Let's end food waste and hunger together.
