Wholesale Food Rescue

Wholesale Food Rescue

Jillian Moore, Cascadia Produce

Stacey Crnich, GoodRoots NW  

The presentation will describe the size of the Wholesale Food Recovery opportunity, and how it benefits farmers and food security alike.  Good Roots, a downstream customer who both purchases and receives donations of wholesale recovered food, will speak on what access to below wholesale cost fresh food has enabled for the organization, as well as the different channels of distribution she works with to place food items that don’t work in the Market setting.
