This month, Flip paid a visit to Daiya Foods, a plant-based dairy alternative manufacturer in Vancouver. Since last year, FoodMesh has worked alongside Daiya to help facilitate over 210,000 meals worth of Daiya products to food insecure community members valuing over $145,782.48 of plant-based goodness.
