With Teams in: Vancouver
What moves you? Join us on October 5, 2019 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere.
Food Stash Foundation is a registered Canadian charity on a mission to rescue food and redirect it to those in need. We strive to reduce the environmental impact of food waste while bridging the food insecurity gap that exists within our community here in Vancouver. Since we began our work in 2016, we have rescued over 350,000 pounds of edible food that would have otherwise been destined for the landfill.
Where does the food go?
We sort, assemble, and deliver rescued food boxes right to the door steps of 50 families. On a weekly basis, we also deliver and donate food to over 12 charities who run their own food security programs. Any and all compost we receive goes directly to a local animal sanctuary for their animal feed!
All the work we do is made possible by everyone who volunteers and supports us. Thank you for joining our RIDE team and contributing to our missions' success! With your help we can continue to close the loop on our food system.
