Rescue Food with Us!

60 percent of the food produced in Canada is lost and wasted annually. 32 percent – equalling 11.2 million metric tonnes of lost food – is avoidable and is edible food that could be redirected to support people in our communities. The Leftovers Foundation exists to ensure nutritious food is kept out of the landfill and instead is redirected to service agencies and into the hands of those who need it most.
