Finding a Solution to Wasted Food: Parker Hughes, Brüzd Foods

Every year, about 60 million tons of produce end up in US landfills. Many fruits and veggies are tossed because they’re cosmetically imperfect: too small, too big, too oddly shaped, or too blemished for supermarkets to sell. Local startup, Brüzd Foods’ solution is to pick up these "ugly,” yet perfectly edible, fruits and vegetables from farms across MA and deliver them to homes throughout Boston every week. Learn more about how this business got off the ground, and how you, as a consumer, can continue to eat more sustainably.
