With your support, we’re helping make sure food reaches the most vulnerable members in communities across Canada.
By donating your business’ surplus food, you can help create social and environmental well-being. And that’s good for your community, your customers, and your business.

We work across the supply chain to rescue surplus food before it ends up in landfill. Our work supports the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals - Responsible Consumption and Production, Climate Action and Zero Hunger.Learn more
