OUR MISSION

To support food literacy programs and foster
conversation about food by rescuing healthy
food that would otherwise be wasted.



OUR TENETS



Decrease Hunger

We aim to reduce hunger by diverting food that would otherwise be thrown out to local food education programs. These programs not only provide those in need with access to food, but they also teach people how to make the most of the food that they have.

Reduce Food Waste

Around the world, nearly a third of all food produced is wasted; it costs Canadians $31 billion a year. Global food production requires immense resources and generates a third of human-made greenhouse gas emissions. Decreasing the amount of wasted edible food can make a huge environmental impact.

Create Conversations

Despite the immediate impact of the work we do, we understand that food rescue alone will not end hunger or solve food waste. We hope that by raising awareness about food issues on our blog and other media, we can reduce the amount of food wasted at all points within the food system while promoting food justice.



HOW REHARVEST WORKS






We coordinate recurring pick-ups of safe and healthy food from bakeries and grocery stores.



We arrange volunteer drivers to pick up and transport the food from the donor organization to a local community partner.



Our community partners deliver food education programs with the rescued food to marginalized communities.
