Bay Baby Produce Mitigates Food Waste with Regional and National Donations
BURLINGTON, WA - Wasted food is a multi-faceted tragedy that includes the loss of sustenance much needed by all consumers and watching the work and investment of our industry literally being thrown away. Shrink is a vicious enemy, and Bay Baby Produce is fighting the good fight by partnering with organizations both regionally and nationally.
“Our company partners with retailers and nonprofits through reduction of food waste efforts, in turn, nourishing Americans and leading by example to take action in fighting hunger throughout the U.S.,” company Owner, Michele Youngquist, said in a recent press release. “At Bay Baby Produce, we are grateful to be able to continue to serve community non-profit organizations locally, regionally, and nationally through our annual food waste campaign.”
While approximately 10 percent of food waste ends up in landfills, Bay Baby has successfully donated approximately 214 tons of fresh produce to date, managing to reduce and divert food from landfills to reduce food waste and feed Americans.
Through its efforts, Bay Baby provides non-profits quality, heart-healthy, conventional, and organic pumpkins and organic hard winter squash.
A woman-owned business for over 30 years, Bay Baby serves as a strong example to companies in the fresh produce industry and beyond.
