CropMobster Prevents Food Waste Through Community Action


Family farms are a strong tradition in the United States, and the vast majority of American farms are family-owned. Unfortunately, food waste is a big problem with smaller farms, and nearly one-third of the food produced by local families is never consumed.

CropMobster is trying to solve that problem, by connecting communities to reduce waste. For starters, they find buyers for family farms' excess food, both helping their bottom line and getting food to those who need it most. So far they've prevented more than a million servings of local products from going into the waste bin–and they're just getting started.
