Gina commented on Sprout

I really like the idea of giving surplus produce a new home while promoting healthy diets! I am especially impressed by the idea of a corresponding app to keep people informed and excited about Sprout! Your visuals are great and I would be very excited to see your mobile pods in my area.

I am curious if you would have trouble getting grocery stores and farmers to donate their surplus to Sprout, rather than selling it which might affect the lower price point of the repurposed produce.
I do have one question, which is: what happens to the food that is not sold from the Sprout mobile pods each day? Is it saved and sold the next day at an even lower price? Or is it thrown away?

Overall, it is a very intriguing idea and I am really impressed. Keep up the good work!
