Phone call day today!

Spoke with Jacobs Farm, Imperfect Produce, and Clinica de Salud del Valle de Salinas this afternoon. They offered great guidance and were very enthusiastic about our idea! We are looking forward to collaborating and establishing official partnerships to bridge the gap between food waste and food insecurity!
