* The program started in Chilliwack, and is now in Kelowna, Prince George, Vernon, Creston, Abbotsford, Maple Ridge, Mission, Cranbrook, Victoria…and expanding across B.C.
How does it work?
Every day, Retailers divert 100% of all perishables, sorting them into edible and inedible totes.
A designated Charity 'Hub' picks up the totes, and shares them with other charities and local farmers.
Donations are tracked via an app and all users get real time analytics.
