It’s possible that you’re missing airline travel right now and the amazing food for purchase in the main cabin. But, guess what?
From Imperfect Foods right now, you can get a cheese plate from Jet Blue—three ounces of mixed cheeses, dried cherries, and crackers—for just $2.99! The Washington Post reports that the grocery delivery service, which started with lumpy produce and branched off into snacks, sees it as a way to help out the mostly-grounded airline.
“Almost two months ago, before it became a nationwide pandemic, this catering and airplane meal supplier said they saw a decline in economy and business-class seats,” Imperfect CEO Philip Behn told the Post. “This was one of our first COVID-19 food waste recovery opportunities. We could only take a fraction of what they had.”
Still, Imperfect has sold 40,000 of the plates so far. It’s also been selling popcorn from movie theaters and pineapples from hotels.
