Feeding Canadians
Not Landfills
Feed it Forward is a Canadian non - for - profit
with two main goals; to feed Canadians that are food
insecure and to reduce food waste

Our mission is to make a difference in the lives of our
fellow Canadians who are in need of assistance in
securing nutritious food and a regular balanced diet

Feed It Forward by Chef Jagger Gordon

Our Mission

Our mission is two-fold: to save perfectly good food that would otherwise destined for the landfill and to support Canadian that are currently food insecure. There’s never been a more urgent time to help our local communities, and that’s where Feed It Forward comes in. We regularly travel around the Greater Toronto Area working with a variety of organizations such as grocery stores, restaurants, farms and other key partners who help out by donating unused and unsold food that is still perfectly edible.

Food Waste and Hunger In Canada

53% of all food produced in Canada ends up in landfills while 1 in 5 families currently live with food insecurities and it’s only getting worse. There’s never been a more urgent time to help our local communities, and that’s where Feed It Forward comes in. We regularly travel around the city of Toronto working with a variety of food partners such as grocery stores/restaurants and partners who donate unused and unsold food otherwise destined for landfill.

Canada's First "Pay What You Can" Grocery Store

We have been operating Canada’s first and only Pay-What-You-Can Grocery Store, bakery and coffee shop since June 2018. All food rescued by Feed It Forward is diverted to the grocery store where it is sorted and organized by volunteers and then put out on the shelves for customers. Customers pay what they can afford based on their budget or can take what they need free of charge. Many customers choose to give back by donating their own food or volunteering at the store or with Feed It Forward’s other programs.
Our Pay What You Can Grocery Store, Cafe, and Bakery is located at 2770 Dundas St West, Unit A, Toronto ON M6P 1Y3. 
The store is open 7 days a week, 11am – 6pm.
