Write every day: Imperfect Foods

One of my big goals this year is to commit to a plant-based diet—better for my health and the planet. I’m also passionate about fighting food waste and promoting justice and equity. This is why I’m so happy to be a customer of Imperfect Foods. This is a post about all the reasons I love them. I’m not being paid by them to write this. I just wanted to share it with all of you. I do have a friends and family link that you’re welcome to use if you’d like. To give Imperfect Foods a try, use this link to get $10 off your first box:

They mitigate food waste with their own line of products and rescue food from producers who would otherwise toss it into a landfill.

40% of food in the U.S. goes uneaten even though 1:5 people experience hunger on a daily basis. $218B in food is thrown away every year. 21% of our water is used to produce uneaten food.

Their prices are better than my grocery store.

They have a huge variety of products including fruits, veggies, baked goods, snacks, dairy, and meat and meat-alternatives. You can completely customize everything in your box each time so you don’t end up with anything you don’t want & skip a shipment if you don’t need it.

They’re committed to food & social justice. They walk the walk with their money, time, and efforts.

Even though people can’t use SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits to buy Imperfect, the company gives a 30% discount to anyone receiving SNAP.

Their podcast, Unwasted, is fantastic with a wide variety of topics related to food including climate change, food justice, and community gardening. Their social handles are also fun and informative.

Their drivers keep you up-to-date on your delivery status and they’re awesome people.

You have a 48 hour period to shop for the coming week’s delivery, and their online experience is easy and fun.

Everything I’ve gotten is delicious and I’m now using them for almost all of my groceries. It’s making me a more creative cook and eater.

Their beautiful new website, The Whole Carrot, is loaded with recipes, food tips, & everything you’d ever want to know about Imperfect Foods.

Their packaging is made of recycled content and it’s either recyclable, compostable, reusable, or returnable.
