Hungry Harvest is Rescuing Ugly Produce To Feed The Needy

** OGTV's second GOOD STORY of the week is about an organization that gets quality produce to those who need it most. Even if it doesn't look perfect, it's the flavor that counts! **

Every year 20 billion pounds of produce goes to waste, never leaving the farm, based on appearance. Too big, too small, misshapen, whatever the reason, healthy, edible food is left to rot while millions go hungry. Hungry Harvest is an organization that aims to reduce food waste while getting quality produce to those in need.

The CEO and Co-Founder Evan Lutz started this company while still in college. He had the brainstorm that he could solve two problems at once by using one to solve the other. "I started a project that used one farmer's surplus produce to sell to college students at the University of Maryland," he explained. "I set up a farm stand in the basement of a dorm. After 6 months, 500 customers were coming to our stand every week. That's when I knew this idea could really take off."
