Farmers turn to social media to prevent food waste

Oct 1, 2013

From uneaten leftovers to unsold produce at the farmers market -- food waste is everywhere. By some estimates, 40% of the food grown or raised in the U.S. isn't eaten. Some local groups are trying to change that. CropMobster, a new Sonoma County-based startup is turning to social media to find homes for food that would otherwise go to waste. 

Nick Papadopoulos, CropMobster CEO and general manager of Bloomfield Farms, says hunger relief organizations are some of the most active members of the CropMobster community.
