Blush Lane Organic is a generous parter with Leftovers YYC. Every Sunday their cheerful staff brings boxes of beautiful fruits and vegetables to the overhead door. I fill my truck and backseat with a bounty to share with the Calgary Dream Centre. At the Dream Centre young men help unload my car all the while expressing gratitude. The young man today called the food a Blessing. Today's share was 160 pounds. Volunteers do what time and talent permits. I feel grateful to be part of a chain that starts with farmers and growers and pickers. To know that the beautiful food is not going to waste makes me happy. Blush Lane Organic and Leftovers fills a void in my life.
Thank you Leftovers Foundation for the weekly delivery of food to support women and children fleeing family violence. Your support is greatly appreciated. The gourmet coffee is a great way to start the day and a life free of violence and abuse.
We have been a partner of LeftOvers for over two years and are proud of the positive impact the organization has had on the community. It’s a heartening feeling knowing that LeftOvers plays a significant role in reducing waste and helping to feed those in need. As a business in the food industry, LeftOvers makes it very convenient to be a part of, by picking up food ready to be donated and delivering it to other service agencies. We are happy to see the continual growth of LeftOvers and will continue to support it to insure that there are more filled tummies and less food waste in our community!
We choose to work with Leftovers because it is the right thing to do and we want to help people in need. It is important that we donate to service agencies in need as we are in a position to do so and why would anyone choose to throw away food that could help feed the hungry and make a positive impact to our local landfills and environment? Working with Leftovers is also beneficial for my business because it assists us in managing our daily wastage, and this is a necessary part of running our business.
Leftovers Foundation allows us to help families in our neighbourhood supply healthy meals for their children. In supplying our families with the food we receive not only are they able to supplement their meals but they are able to free up some of their budget for other things such as rent or bills. We are very appreciative of the partnership with Leftovers and are excited to continue on this journey of supporting our clients where they are at.
Leftovers help us give our participants and their mom’s the best experience at My Best Friend’s Closet by providing them with (much needed) delicious pastries.
Leftovers has the heart and passion to direct food to where there is need, and do it with great care and organization. Easy and pleasant to partner with.
With dignity we are proud to offer a variety healthy foods & baked goods that bring our community together over a snack & cup of coffee. Leftovers allows us at the Women's Centre to offer choice and quality when offering snacks to women in our Centre.
Calgary Leftovers has not only helped Food for Peace deliver its programs of feeding those in need, but it has changed the way we look at food and challenged us to be creative with our menu plans. With their support we are able to sustainably offer multiple events per month, allowing our volunteers as well as our clients the opportunity to enjoy vegetarian meals, while keeping good food out of the landfill.
