The Collaborative for Fresh Produce believes that everyone should have access to the fresh produce needed to support a healthy lifestyle.
1 in 8 Americans
struggles with food insecurity and lacks access to fresh produce.
20 billion pounds
of produce are left in the fields to rot or wasted each year.
Access to fresh produce that’s crucial for a healthy lifestyle is NOT a problem of supply, it’s a problem of distribution
– and one that can be solved.
COLLABORATIVE FOR FRESH PRODUCE is a non-profit organization partnering with commercial farmers and food banks to efficiently collect and distribute donations of imperfect and surplus produce to food banks and the hungry families they serve.
