Full Harvest delivers rescued produce from produce supplier, Race-West, to City Harvest, New York City’s largest food rescue organization, (helping to feed the more than 1.5 million New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables.) The produce delivery to City Harvest is part of Full Harvest's joint promotion during Earth Week with Chef Marcus Samuelsson's Red Rooster restaurant in Harlem, N.Y., and Danone's Two Good yogurt. Thanks to Race-West, Full Harvest also delivered rescued onions, lemons, and cauliflower which Chef Samuelsson will use to create his Earth Week menu at the Red Rooster restaurant.
The "Top Chef" alum and James Beard Foundation awarded chef said, “Food waste directly impacts people and our planet, which is why as chefs we can be a vital part of ﬁnding solutions to eliminate it. I’m proud to be working with Two Good and Full Harvest to bring rescued produce into my kitchen so that we can take this step towards driving awareness of one way restaurants can make our supply chain more sustainable. I encourage my friends and fellow chefs to join me in using rescued produce this month, and beyond so that together we can make an impact on the startling amount of food that is wasted in the US.”
Full Harvest is an online marketplace that makes it easy and efficient for businesses to purchase surplus and imperfect produce in volume.
