Food banks and food pantries rely primarily on their local communities to provide them with the necessary food and funds to help feed their neighbors in need. Nutritious and perishable items like produce are rarely donated unless the nonprofits have a relationships with farmers who can afford to help. Farmer’s Choice connects hunger-relief organizations nationwide with a unique marketplace created just for them. Through this network, nonprofits can acquire wholesome but unmarketable produce for pennies on the pound. In fact, 1 in every 10 loads go to food banks at zero cost. By offsetting the costs of picking, packing and shipping we get nutritious food to those in need, reduce waste and increase a farmer’s productivity. Farmer’s Choice is the premier leader of produce to nonprofits in the country.
