"CropMobster helps communities tackle many of the interrelated challenges we face on issues ranging from food waste and growing local food economies to food insecurity and resource scarcity. As a farmer & President of the California State Board of Food and Agriculture, I fully endorse this effort."
"CropMobster’s model makes a lot of sense. They offer an integrated model which equips community institutions with not just technology (because I do not believe tech alone offers us a silver bullet) but with social and community approaches needed to make a significant dent on food system challenges including food waste."
"CropMobster engages and builds community while making the agricultural economy more robust and keeping food out of landfills. Meanwhile, CropMobster's use of alerts and social media make it an admirably efficient operation. What's not to love?"

Thank You Notes
"In the past 1.5 years at the Estero Cafe we have put up multiple craigslist ads at $75 a pop and have literally gotten nowhere fast with them! Literally hired no one - within less than 12 hours I received 3 or 4 emails from bright sounding individuals who I will be interviewing next week! What would we do without CropMobster?! Of course I can post a thank you alert, but just really wanted you to know how much we love your platform and how much we rely on it and how just totally awesome we think you are!"
"This week, thanks to CropMobster, 9 families and an entire preschool were fed super affordable delicious organic produce. Somehow EVERYONE came out ahead. Thanks CropMobster for inventing a new economy!"
"We were able to get everything we needed at Roseland Creek Elementary school garden – over 500 plant and veggie starts for a local nursery."
"CropMobster is an amazing creation, and we have been using it on Fridays to help us responsibly donate our leftovers. It’s super easy to use and incredibly efficient."
"CropMobster is an amazing and long overdue vehicle for the small to medium ag producer! It has allowed us to manage cash flow by getting a small sum of money for something that was either going to go to waste, backing up storage facilities that cost money or worse, the ethical cost of not being able to afford to donate it to someone that could use it. It is really hard to justify time and money to load and deliver something you want to donate, once you spend the time to find an organization that can use what you have at that given moment. With CropMobster, all those stresses are taken away and good gets done simply and swiftly."
"I posted on your site this morning for goat cheese and milk, and by tonight had at least six new contacts for our products!!! Thanks so much for putting this together. I can’t wait to see how things develop."
"Wow! The girls (egg laying chickens) found a home in 20 minutes. CropMobster is rad!"
"Thank you so much for setting CropMobster up – as someone who has been farming for many years, it is making a HUGE difference!"
"CropMobster is creating a much needed revolution in local food distribution. By connecting small farmers and producers directly to those who can use their food, CropMobster does two things that are critically important to the long-term health of the community – helping farmers make a living by getting more healthy fresh food to those who most need it. Brilliant!"
