Unfortunately, 58% of food produced in Canada is lost or wasted annually. However, almost one third of this wasted food could be rescued and redistributed. Second Harvest saw an opportunity here and developed foodrescue.ca as a direct response to the challenge of food waste.
“Foodrescue.ca provides us with so much variety of food that we can use. It’s also so easy to use and allows us to connect with donors we never thought of connecting [with]. ”
