In this episode we speak with Nita Kurmins Gilson, Co-founder of ProduceGood, a food recovery nonprofit in San Diego County. Nita and her team are recovering some of the 40% of food that is wasted daily and delivering this to the 1 in 6 people who are food insecure. They do this by recovering excess from backyards, farms & Farmers Markets; upcycling unwanted produce to the food system; and engaging and inspiring our community to reduce food waste & hunger
We asked Nita what she is most excited about, right now. Here is her inspiring answer:
“KIDS! I just gave a presentation to 5 classes of first grade gardening students at Cardiff Elementary. Their gardening instructor, a wonderful young man named Jonathan Kardos, wanted to teach the kids about the whole food system, including food waste and food insecurity. They offered to donate the harvest from 10 of the 20 beds of veggies they had grown. I believe that Berry Good Foundation granted Mr. Kardos funds to build another school garden in the district, at Ada Harris school. So, it was WONDERFUL to see the full circle! Kids feeding community. They were so stoked to be able to harvest 70 pounds of their own grown bounty and donate this to Community Resource Center, a local charity that does amazing work, in Encinitas.”
