About This Show
The Edible Radio Network is a collection of podcasts by publishers of local Edible Magazines across the US and Canada. Through our publications, podcasts, supporting websites, TV and events, we connect consumers with family farmers, growers, chefs, and food artisans of all kinds. We believe that every person has the right to affordable, fresh, healthful food on a daily basis and that knowing where our food comes from is a powerful thing.
Each podcast episode brings listeners closer to a food, a farmer, an artisan or an author, looking into the tapestry of food culture at the individual-thread level to reveal the intricacies of the whole.

Tastes of the Tropics - Hungry Harvest
Fighting Food Waste One Produce Box at a Time Tons of fresh, nutritious, delicious fruits and vegetables are wasted every day because they never even make it to the grocery store. Maybe they’re too big, too small, blemished or otherwise imperfect, at least in the eyes of the grocer. Or perhaps the farmer grew too much to sell. Whatever the reason, Now, this “rescued” produce is available to consumers through Hungry Harvest, a service that gathers freshly harvested food and sells it online via subscription. The Baltimore-based business, which delivers in Maryland, Washington, DC, northern Virginia, Philly and South Florida, has expanded to South Florida. We spoke with Evan Lutz, whose belief that no food should go to waste led him to co-found Hungry Harvest. And we unbox one of their organic mini-harvest boxes to find out what’s inside, and why it’s there. (Spoiler alert: It’s all fresh and delicious).
