Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rescue
We are introducing to you the 4th "R" to the cycle of green living: Rescue.
The reason? Companies like Waste Reduction Week in Canada have estimated that more than $10 billion worth of food is wasted in households from coast to coast each year. This is like having 2.1 million more cars on the road. But with food waste prevention information and communities of people and organizations working together, this food could be redirected to food rescue organizations.
Which is why we're encouraging everyone to come to the rescue. At IGA, we believe in supporting local community groups, local food banks, and local action. That's why we’re bringing you a number of food waste prevention tips to help you start your journey to become a Food Rescuer right at home.
Follow along and join in on the conversation on social media using #FoodRescue.
