Growing up on a farm, it pains him to know how much food is thrown away that farmers have worked so hard to produce, so he’s addressing the problem at the source. FoodMaven sells high-quality local, oversupplied and imperfect food from distributors, manufacturers, and producers to restaurants and institutional kitchens at a significant discount. This is a fascinating story about doing well, while doing good.
