Our mission

CropMobster’s mission is to empower communities to transform food waste, surplus and loss into new value, celebration and resource efficiency. We empower our clients with the knowledge, training and gear to harness the power of community to ignite crowdsourcing, sharing and measurable results. And we’re also, if you haven’t noticed, on a mission to have FUN!

By leveraging social media and instant email alerts, we’re able to spread the word quickly about local food excess and surplus from any supplier in the food chain, get healthy food to those in need, help local businesses recover costs, prevent food waste and connect our community in new and fun ways. Sign up today and get started!
