What’s this project all about?

Almost 60% of food produced in Canada is wasted, contributing 56.5 M M tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions in Canada per year. Retail supermarkets are a huge contributor of that waste, throwing out tonnes of perfectly good, edible food surplus every day. We are asking the big 3 Canadian supermarkets (Metro, Loblaws and affiliates and Sobey and affiliates) to commit to diverting their edible food surplus to people, not landfill.
