Produce Capture Institute

The Produce Capture Institute is the first peer learning initiative within the Feeding America network, specifically focused on locally sourcing unutilized agricultural products.

The Produce Capture Institute is working with ten Feeding America food bank members to localize agricultural surplus rescue methods and surplus distribution. 

What PCI does

  • Identify and integrate business-based solutions into the produce rescue process.
  • Facilitate the expansion of produce rescue innovation currently activated.
  • Learn and teach successful produce capture techniques that can be applied to member food banks across the network.

The Produce Capture Institute initiative has been specifically designed to support the "source to excess" philosophy and complement regional produce sourcing and other existing produce initiatives.
