Results

Our work has helped fulfil the FVRD’s Regional Food Action Plan, and at the end of the year Pilot, the projected numbers were surpassed. The program is continuing into 2020.
” This project is helping the FVRD region reduce the amount of food waste being disposed of and finding higher uses that benefit the environment, our economy and communities. “Jason Lum, FVRD Chair

Rhiza Capital featured FoodMesh for their Impact Series.
The Retail Food Recovery Program piloted in the FVRD with Chilliwack as the first Community to implement that program.

It takes a network to create systemic change

Food waste is a global problem and has become a part of the efforts of Regional Governments’ Plans and Sustainability Goals to reduce Community and Corporate waste.

FoodMesh is a service provider creating custom programs to help fulfil these economic, social and environmental goals.

We have the expertise and technology to provide the services and programs to execute on these goals. The result is a more connected and accountable local food network that helps save money, reduce waste and feed more.
