Food Stash Foundation is a registered Canadian charity founded in 2016 with the goal of reducing the negative environmental effects of food waste by rescuing surplus food directly from suppliers and redirecting it to individuals in our community who are experiencing food insecurity.
Whether it is through our rescued food box program—delivering weekly food boxes to members of our community facing barriers to food accessibility—or through our partnerships with other local food security programs, we are on a mission to bridge the food insecurity gap, reduce our environmental footprint and bring awareness to how our food choices impact our environment and our health. Everybody wins!
