Our mission

 

We are a grassroots organization attempting to eradicate hunger and redistribute food in the Greater Toronto Area. Every year, Canada wastes $31 billion worth of food. Of this figure, 10% of food waste happens on farms before the food even enters the marketplace for sale. We feel strongly about statistics like these and feel a sense of urgency in implementing meaningful change.  

 

Our dedicated team of volunteers are committed to eliminate food waste and eradicate environmental pollution. We are willing to take action to re-distribute excess food to those in need. Ideas like our community fridges (the first of which opened on March 18th 2018 at 229 Rexdale Blvd.) were made possible through efforts made from members of the local community.
