About Fresh Food Connect:
This year, an estimated 54 million Americans, or one in four children, will face food insecurity. At least 40% of food in the US goes to waste, becoming a contributor to climate change. At the same time, gardening is on the rise, with one third of Americans currently growing food.
is on a mission to grow a more local and resilient food system by connecting gardeners with their communities. Fresh Food Connect licenses its technology to hunger relief organizations (“operators”) around the country who use the mobile app to coordinate donations of homegrown produce to create positive change in the local food system. Individual gardeners sign up on the Fresh Food Connect app to donate their backyard grown produce that would perhaps otherwise go to waste. Fresh Food Connect conveniently helps solve “the zucchini problem” by directing surplus produce from the home or community garden to hunger relief centers, either through a pick-up or drop-off model, depending on local operations, and ultimately to members of the community who need it most. We envision homegrown food within reach.
Fresh Food Connect is growing fast: we first started in one zip code in Denver with 3 operators, and now are working in 24 states (Plus Guam!) and over 1,700 zip codes with 66 operators. We believe that at scale, small contributions from many individuals across the country can have a massive impact on food security, hunger relief, and climate change.
