Dylan J. Bondy is the Head of Outreach at Imperfect Produce, America's leading consumer brand for "cosmetically-challenged" fruits and vegetables. Imperfect is on a mission to find a home for the 6 billion pounds per year of produce that is currently wasted because of aesthetic non-conformity that doesn't affect taste or quality. Previously, Dylan founded Food Recovery Network at Grinnell College in 2013 while he was a student at the small Iowa liberal arts school. Under Dylan’s leadership, FRN at Grinnell became the first rural chapter of the national student non-profit. By connecting the college dining hall, local restaurants, and grocery stores to local outlets for distribution throughout the community, Dylan created a sustainable program that continues to feed over 300 people per week in the small town of Grinnell, Iowa. Dylan has spoken at food recovery conferences around the country about "Innovative Solutions to Rural Hunger" & is also an alumnus of City Year Los Angeles—an AmeriCorps program.
