The Imperfect community’s impact

With every box we deliver, we help farmers and producers make a better living and help folks like you eat better while reducing waste in our food system. Here are our proudest accomplishments of 2019:

  • Together, we saved 42.9 million pounds of food in 2019 and 84.9 million pounds of food since 2015

  • You returned over 175,000 used Imperfect boxes for donation to food bank partners through our box return program (created by customer demand!)

  • Last but not least, we donated over 1.7 million pounds of food to our food bank and nonprofit partners

Thank you for making 2019 the best year yet! We’ve shown the world the undeniably positive impact that we can have when we commit to eliminating food waste. We can’t wait to find out what we’ll accomplish together in 2020!
