I am one of five finalists speaking on behalf of a new venture, Farm to Freezer, in the TEDxManhattan speaker competition. Farm to Freezer collects organic vegetables leftover from weekly a farmer’s market, works with volunteers to cook and freeze those veggies, and then this healthy food is incorporated into Bethesda Cares’ meals served to homeless and hungry people in the Metro Washington DC area.
In this first season, Farm to Freezer gleaned 5,000 lbs. of fresh, organic vegetables, prepared 1,500 lbs. of frozen tomato sauce and vegetables which will serve 2,500 people throughout the year. Farm to Freezer is on the cusp of scaling up operations to become self-sustaining. Winning a speaking opportunity at TEDX will provide critical visibility and, hopefully, lead to funding that will support this social enterprise.
