Description

Imperfect is on a mission to eliminate food waste and to make healthy food more affordable, accessible, and convenient. We source food directly from farms and producers, which would often otherwise go to waste and deliver it to customers' doors for an average of 30% less than grocery store prices. Since our start in 2015, our customers have saved millions of pounds of food from going to waste.
 
Imperfect is more than just a grocery box! In everything we do, we bring an appetite, lead with heart, embrace imperfection, and work to grow the movement. We aim to cultivate sustainable environments everywhere we go–whether in the office, warehouse, or field. By working at Imperfect, you’re helping build a more sustainable and effective food system. You’re helping fight food waste. You’re ensuring farmers are rewarded for their full harvest. You’re improving access to healthy food in food deserts. With each curvy cucumber and scarred almond, you’re helping shape our world for the better.
 
We're headquartered in San Francisco with operations all over the country. Check our website to see if there is an Imperfect near you!
