The problem

Hunger and climate change is partly a logistics problem involving ineffective redistribution of excess food.

our solution

Zero Food Waste Canada connects businesses with excess food to individuals and families who need it most. We facilitate the rescue and re-distribution of excess food from food providers, including restaurants, hotels, and catering companies, and provide it to disadvantaged communities.


Our core values


We believe in diverting waste to reduce the carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions associated with food waste. Together, we hope to create a sustainable future.


We value and strive to maintain an inclusive organization, welcoming people of all backgrounds and experiences.


We are committed to making an impact within the local and global communities we serve. We give ourselves and our time towards a cause we truly believe in.
