Farmers Post Produce Delivery
A business case from The Markets Institute at WWF identifies the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a potential player in bringing fresh produce to people who may lack access through existing services. "Farmers Post" proposes a model that can reduce on-farm crop loss and overcome affordability and accessibility hurdles of other food delivery services by using the vast logistical network of the USPS to deliver food surplus direct from farm to consumers.
This concept could help the bottom lines of farmers and the USPS, get healthy food to communities and households without many other options, and decrease food loss in a win for both people and nature. Do you want fruit and veggies delivered to your mailbox?
