Food Stash Foundation is a registered Canadian Charity that has a twofold mission to rescue food from producers and suppliers that would have been destined for the landfill, and to deliver edible food items to charities and food-insecure households and individuals in Vancouver.
The food we pick up would have otherwise been sent to the landfill for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to: imperfect produce, best before date reached, day-old grain products, and items that are not selling fast enough. Since starting in September 2016 we have recovered over 100 000 lbs of food from 53 stores and delivered it over to 26 different charities.
While delivering food, we also hope to build a greater understanding of how our food choices impact the environment and our health, including education around the nutrition content of the food we deliver and the benefits of using local, seasonal, and organic food whenever possible.
