30% of all produce developed for consumption is inevitably wasted before getting to the general public. A big part of that comes from processing in grocery stores. Project Gratisvore is a food recovery program that targets food considered cosmetically unsatisfactory by grocery stores. An apple that is too bruised and an overripe banana are examples of such produce. Truckloads of such food are composted or simply thrown away every week; this builds up to a humongous amount of food injustice and food waste. We will develop stable recovery programs in grocery stores and donate this food to local community kitchens and food banks.
