why we do this

Simply, we want to help solve the alarming issue of food insecurity in Canada by tapping into existing goodwill and available surplus food and manufacturing to transform it into good nutritious food for those who need it most.

but first - did you know?

Food Banks gives away food that Canadians donate to their food banks but it doesn't cover everything they need.

In fact, in 2018 94% of all 500 food banks affiliated with Food Banks Canada used cash donations to purchase $27 Million of food from retailers and wholesalers.

food waste

Food waste is front page news in Canada and reports are astonishing:

$31 Billion of food is wasted
EVERY year in Canada
71% of food waste occurs BEFORE

We focus along most of the supply chain from farmers, processing, manufacturing to distribution.
