Perfectly Imperfect 2020
What a year 2020 has been! Here are some of our favorite highlights in a short video.
Together we rescued over a million pounds of produce in 2020 and we donated over 100,000 pounds to local families in need and to our first responders on the front lines. When Covid hit, our business multiplied by 5 and we went from delivering hundreds of boxes per week to thousands, virtually overnight. Our small but mighty team rose to the challenge. While others were kept home during the stay home order, we were packing up produce to deliver to our community when they had few means to get fresh food safely. It was our honor to be here to help when folks needed us most.
In 2020 we launched several new products, we began deliveries to Toledo, Cincinnati and Dayton and we opened up pickups from our facility. We began virtual cooking demos with our partners at Metrohealth. We teamed up with The Hunger Network to get boxes to the hungry right here in Ohio. And we launched our restaurant recipe features to highlight local chefs.
For some, 2020 was a year they’d like to forget. For us 2020 was a year that helped show us everything we’re capable of. And while it was very challenging, there are so many positives for us to remember about the past 12 months. Thank you for all the love you have shown us in 2020. We have BIG things coming in 2021 and we can hardly wait to tell you more about it all! Happy New Year PIP family! Cheers to a happy and healthy new year!
