The contest raised awareness of food waste in the U.S. According to Ugly Food, 20-40% of all produce is wasted worldwide because it "looks a little different than the food you will find in most grocery stores."

Nils squashNils, a backyard gardener, took the Grand Prize with his squash. The contest is in conjuction with Utah Eat Local Week. There are more events and challenges happening all week. Check out how you can get involved at www.facebook.com/eatlocalutah!
