The Fraser Valley Regional District Food Recovery Network

Fraser Valley Regional District logo

In partnership with FoodMesh, the Fraser Valley Regional District is building a food recovery network of Fraser Valley-based businesses, charities and farmers to connect those with surplus food to those who need it.

Do you have food you’re unable to sell?

Don’t let it go to waste. We’re here to help you find someone to put that food to good use. Give us a call to get started.
