Pro-Use Produce

John and Aaron the Pro-Use Produce guys

Pro-Use Produce is a RaVE mini-grantee that is committed to feeding kids high-quality nutritious snacks.  By dehydrating surplus produce they create delicious, non-perishable food that kids enjoy, and at the same time reduce food waste.  Their vision is to make healthy food accessible to all children and help them understand the value of a nutritious diet.  They envision a food system in which every piece of produce feeds someone somewhere, or is composted to garner the full potential of what the earth has provided us.

They have an interesting system where they are selling and donating bags of dried produce.  They have donated many pounds this year to the Rainier Valley Food Bank and will be donating more as the season picks up.
