Since FoodMesh and IGA of BC joined forces to give food a second chance back in April 2020, their 22 stores have collectively donated the equivalent of 1 million meals to people in our communities. We would like to congratulate them on reaching this outstanding milestone!
Theresa Contois from Cedar Feast House Catering – one of IGA’s donation recipients – said of their support: “I am so thankful and appreciate what the folks at IGA are doing – aside from feeding those in need, they are also keeping my people busy with experiences to work and learn.”
1 million meals donated means that IGA of BC has:
kept 597,346 KG of unsalable food out of waste streams
saved 1,537,896 KG of CO2 emissions from entering the atmosphere
A huge congratulations to everyone who participates in this program for being food rescue heroes!
