Description

The Leftovers Foundation (Leftovers) is Western Canada's largest food rescue charity with a dual mission of environmental protection and hunger relief. They work with over 70 local restaurants, bakeries and grocers in Calgary and Edmonton to ensure nutritious food is kept out of the landfill and instead redirects approximately 6000 lbs per week to over 50 service agencies and into the hands of those who need it most.

Services Offered

The food rescued and delivered helps service agencies such as the Calgary Drop-In Centre, Calgary Interfaith Food Bank, Alpha House, Making Changes Association, and Inn from the Cold reduce their annual grocery bills, alleviating stress and freeing up funds that can be reinvested in other vital support programs like housing, education, rehabilitation, and other essential social support programs.
