Food rescue pilot program
With the Second Harvest Food Rescue App, Fred’s store diverts food surplus to local charities who then support families in need with fresh, healthy food. With one in seven Canadian families struggling with food insecurity, effective solutions are critical.
“We have food items that are consumable but no longer able to be sold in the store,” says Fred, who has been a store manager for almost 25 years. “We provide information on what we have available to Second Harvest and they match it up with a community group that needs it.”
Nobody wants to see anybody go hungry.
