Partnering with Feeding America
PowerGrow is establishing a key partnership with Feeding America. In a country that wastes billions of pounds of food each year, it's almost shocking that anyone in America goes hungry. Yet every day, there are millions of children and adults who do not get the meals they need to thrive. Feeding America worsk to get nourishing food – from farmers, manufacturers, and retailers – to people in need. At the same time, they also seek to help the people they serve build a path to a brighter, food-secure future.
We are really excited to build out this partnership with Feeding America. Nearly 20% of produce grown in greenhouses is accepted by large retailers. Yet almost all of this produce is fit for human consumption and will help improve public health and we can direct the produce to Feeding America's food banks all over the county.
