With the state of the world right now, we’re all trying to help in any way possible. That could be through donating to food banks, going grocery shopping for someone who is at-risk or simply making do with pantry staples. Everyone needs to come together, and we love seeing examples of kindness every day.
Right now, JetBlue and Imperfect Foods are doing their best to stop food waste!
Why Is JetBlue Selling In-Flight Snacks?
Well, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, JetBlue is handing out fewer snacks to hungry travelers. The snacks were sitting in storage—but they have an expiration date and were destined for the trash. JetBlue Airways took its 3 oz. cheese, cracker and dried cherry snack trays and sold them at a discounted price to suppliers like Imperfect Foods, and then donated the remaining inventory to food banks through Feeding America.
Imperfect Foods is now selling the snack packs for just $2.99. If you’re missing that travel lifestyle and looking for a small token of past memories, grab a snack pack, pull up a reclining chair and pretend you’re preparing for takeoff.
Wait—What Is Imperfect Foods?
Imperfect Foods is a food delivery service that focuses on limiting food waste by allowing customers to purchase surplus or damaged food items. This means that food items with older packaging or cosmetic damages are available to shoppers. It helps eliminate tons of food waste, which is beyond amazing.
Ready for a trip? You can order the JetBlue airplane snacks as part of your next Imperfect Foods delivery box. Then, eat your snacks as you take a virtual tour of Vatican City or the Van Gogh museum. Safe travels!
