Hungry Harvest, a farm to doorstep produce delivery service, is launching operations in Ann Arbor and Detroit. The company works to rescue fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste due to cosmetic imperfections or surpluses, curates that produce into weekly customizable harvest boxes and delivers it directly to subscribers starting at $15.
Every Hungry Harvest delivery rescues at least 10 pounds of food from going to waste and supports the work of local hunger-solving organizations. In Metro Detroit, 500,000 people live in poverty and are at risk of going hungry. Each year, 125 billion pounds of food are destined for the landfill, accounting for 176 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions, while 20 percent of Americans live in food insecurity. “Simple choices, like how we get our food, are more powerful than we think” says CEO Evan Lutz.
Hungry Harvest has joined with Forgotten Harvest, a nonprofit organization that delivers food – free of charge to emergency food providers across Metro Detroit. CEO Kirk Mayes advises, “Our trucks will continue to go out every day delivering healthy, rescued food to agencies that serve this vulnerable population.”
New customers can use code HEALTHYMI for $5 off their first box at HungryHarvest.net.
