According to a 2019 report by Second Harvest entitled “The Avoidable Crisis of Food Waste” the annual cost of avoidable food loss and wasted in Canada is $1,766 per household.
And the waste comes with environmental impacts. Each year, food waste in Canada creates some 56.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent emissions, according to the report. Food in landfills also creates methane gas, which is “25 times more damaging to the environment than carbon dioxide,” the report says.
We want to help change all that. We partner with local stores to help them sell food nearing the best before date, passing along a discounted price and savings to the customer.
We partner with a variety of businesses including local grocers, boutique food stores, small restaurants, and local farmers markets. Our list of product vendors is continually growing – Check out our store listing to find the retailer nearest you!
