Imperfect produce now delivers to downtown neighborhoods

IMPERFECT PRODUCE NOW DELIVERS TO DOWNTOWN NEIGHBORHOODS as well as Alamo Heights, Olmos Park and Terrell Hills. The aim is to help reduce food that is tossed out but can still be consumed, officials said. According to figures, about 20 percent of all fruits and vegetables grown in the United States don’t adhere to the strict cosmetic standards of grocery stores, so billions of pounds of produce are wasted every year. Representatives said Imperfect Produce helps to narrow the food gap by delivering “ugly” and surplus produce for 30 to 50 percent less than a grocery store. It has successfully recovered 30 million pounds of consumables since the company started in 2015. The company’s website says the produce is healthy and delicious.
