The United Way Food Recovery Network
The United Way of the Lower Mainland is leading the way to tackle food security!
In partnership with FoodMesh, the United Way of the Lower Mainland is building a Food Recovery Network of charities to better connect those with food, to charities in need.
We're creating an online network to increase access for charities. This is a dedicated service for food and related needs.
There are three FoodMesh programs that are available to United Way agencies to access low-cost or free food resources (see below for more information). For help finding out which services would be the best fit for your organization, please call our concierge service:
By the end of December 2020, The United Way Food Recovery Network will:
Provide 25,000 meals to feed the clients of UWLM charity partners
Provide 6 Months of Digital ‘Concierge’ Service for UWLM agencies to help connect to resources
Onboard interested agencies onto the the FoodMesh Marketplace, the Retail Food Recovery program in their community, and the Wholesale & Surplus Buying Service.
