We are small, but mighty! This team of hardworking people will not settle for status quo. We live by the mantra, “I am not perfect, my food shouldn’t be either. “ Our goal is to provide you with the freshest, perfectly imperfect fruits and vegetables we can rescue each week. Each of us is passionate about doing as much as we possibly can to make the world around us a better place by reducing waste and helping others eat well so they can live their healthiest, happiest life.

Ashley Weingart

Founder

Ashley wears many hats for PIP overseeing all aspects of buying, packing, logistics, customer service, marketing and more! You’ll often even see her out driving our truck picking up produce from local farms.

After graduating from Indiana University in 2000 with degrees in Journalism and Psychology, Ashley worked in the advertising industry for several years both in Chicago and Cleveland. She left her career in 2007 to raise her three children. Soon she discovered the itch to indulge her entrepreneurial spirit and managed a couple of small businesses including a line of fruit and veggie based dog snacks as well as a children’s clothing and decor line. Eventually Ashley also circled back to her love of writing and developed a blog about her adventures as a marathon runner.

In 2015 her family brought her into their produce business as Director of Communications & Community Outreach. Ashley developed Perfectly Imperfect as a program of Forest City Weingart Produce in an effort to reduce the waste she witnessed at all levels of the food chain and to provide more healthy food to the neighborhoods in need surrounding the business. Ashley has also served as a Nutrition Educator for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and a writer and photographer for a local magazine.
