Fresh St. Market is proud to give food a second chance with FoodMesh
Our commitment to reducing food waste
It is estimated that 58% of all food produced in Canada is wasted - 84% of which occurs along the supply chain.
Fresh St. Market is committed to ensuring that none of our unsalable edible food ends up in landfill. We have partnered with FoodMesh to help us divert surplus food from our stores to local charitable organizations, to be used for meals.
The food recovery program is operational at all six of our stores!
FoodMesh is a Vancouver-based Benefit Corporation, dedicated to reducing unnecessary food waste and feeding more. They provide digital solutions that unite all elements of the food supply chain to help organizations quickly and easily divert their surplus food to the people in our communities who need it most.
