Obesity and disease are prevalent in the United States. Experts say it is caused in large part by the fact that Americans are eating an exorbitant amount of highly processed foods which create inflammation, leading to obesity and chronic illness.
According to the Harvard School of Public Health, "A diet rich in vegetables and fruits can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect upon blood sugar." The idea of using food as medicine is certainly not new. Hippocrates is credited with saying, "Let thy food be thy medicine..." all the way back in 400 B.C. Today research is able to back up this idea, physicians who prescribe fresh produce attest to its ability to help manage chronic illness, and insurers who are investing in produce prescriptions for their members are seeing the positive effects on health and the bottom line. We are committed to revolutionizing health and wellness in our nation using the "medicine" that was planted right here for us.

6 Billion Pounds of Produce Are Wasted Due to “Imperfections”
In 2016 we set out on a mission to reduce food waste and improve healthy food access for all. Fruits and veggies that are unique in size, shape or color are often rejected to meet consumer demand for perfection. It’s part of the reason our country throws away 40% of the food we produce, which ends up in landfills where it turns to methane — a greenhouse gas 100 times more potent than carbon monoxide. When 21% of our water, 18% of our land and 10% of our energy is used to grow our country’s food, that’s an awful lot of resources to be wasting. Especially when 41 million Americans are food insecure. Over the past six years, we have rescued millions of pounds of fresh food and we have donated hundreds of thousands of pounds to local food pantries as Perfectly Imperfect Produce. Through our Real Food Remedy brand we are continuing to utilize rescued fresh fruits and vegetables.

As part of a fourth generation produce family, I have been fortunate to have always had a wide array of fresh fruits and vegetables available to me. This has made it relatively easy to feed myself and my family nutritious meals. I believe that every human being deserves access to food that will enable them to live a healthy and full life. After witnessing the food waste that exists in our nation, I know there is plenty of perfectly fresh food to go around. I have made it my life's work to create changes to our food system and our healthcare system to reduce food waste, improve food access and help others improve their health.
