A former food policy Fulbright Fellow and employee of the United States Healthful Food Council, Elizabeth Bennett created Fruitcycle after a trip to a local orchard, where she saw thousands of pounds of produce going to waste every day. Fruitcycle aims to raise awareness of the issue of food waste, encourage others to get involved, and to be a part of the solution. The company itself is a social enterprise, providing jobs for women who have been formerly incarcerated, homeless, or otherwise disadvantaged. Fruitcycle products can be found throughout Virginia, DC, Maryland and their online store.
