The results are in and we are truly floored by your generosity. Imperfect customers donated 27,372 orders of food to nonprofit partners between Thanksgiving and New Year’s through our “Donate Your Order” program. This is nearly quadruple the number of orders the Imperfect community donated in 2019!
By choosing to donate your orders instead of skipping them during holiday weeks, you stepped up admirably and showed us what a kinder, less wasteful food system can look like. We are deeply grateful for how you’ve embraced the spirit of compassion this winter. Your holiday generosity benefitted some incredible food banks and nonprofits across the country:
