Hungry Harvest is the nation’s leading brand fighting food waste and hunger by delivering farm to doorstep rescued produce. We believe that no produce should go to waste and no person should go hungry. In just 4 years, we’ve rescued over 8 million pounds of produce from going to waste and supported local hunger-solving organizations with over 700,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables. And we’re just getting started. Our family is made up of our team, heroes, farmers and community, and we’ve got our family’s back.
