Where can we find emergency food for families and individuals who really need it? Food rescue or food recovery is where folks safely retrieve edible food which otherwise goes to waste, and distributing it to those in need. This recovered food, such as fruits, vegetables, and proteins, can solve both problems of hunger and nutrition deficiency, potentially leading to diet-related disease and also food waste.
Join us in this motivating and mind-expanding podcast with Maddie Hague, Program Manager of Food Stash in Vancouver, Canada!
