Mission

To support food literacy programs and foster conversation about food by rescuing healthy food that would otherwise be wasted.

Organizational Objectives

Decrease Hunger

  • We aim to reduce hunger by diverting food that would otherwise be thrown out to local food education programs. These programs not only provide those in need with access to food, but they also teach people how to make the most of the food that they have.

Reduce Food Waste

  • Around the world, nearly a third of all food produced is wasted; it costs Canadians $31 billion a year. Global food production requires immense resources and generates a third of human-made greenhouse gas emissions. Decreasing the amount of wasted edible food can make a huge environmental impact.

Create Conversations

  • Despite the immediate impact of the work we do, we understand that food rescue alone will not end hunger or solve food waste. We hope that by raising awareness about food issues on our blog and other media, we can reduce the amount of food wasted at all points within the food system while promoting food justice.

Typical Volunteer Opportunities

  • Community Outreach
  • Workday Volunteers
  • Volunteers with cars who can pick up food and deliver it
