Hungry Harvest


Ever wonder what happens to the sweet potatoes that are too oddly shaped for the grocery store? Or all the apples that don’t get picked at the orchards? Hungry Harvest  works with farmers and wholesalers to rescue their “ugly” and surplus fruits and vegetables for their weekly delivery service, which is now live in the Triangle area. Each box saves at least 10 pounds of produce from going to waste and supports food donations to the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.
Check out their press release for more information, and use the exclusive HQ member discount code HQ10 for $10 off your first order!
