Food Saved From Landfills
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.
FEED THE FUTURE
by Feed it Forward, Get delicious and affordable chef-prepared meals delivered straight to campus – while feeding someone in need and saving the environment.
Feed the Future mission is to address the food waste and hunger crisis in our city, starting with you. Get nutritious frozen meals prepared by locally renowned Chef Jagger Gordon, using blemished but perfectly edible food from local suppliers that would have otherwise gone to waste. Through a pay-it-forward model, every meal purchased provides a meal for someone else in need.
VISIT OUR PAY WHAT YOU CAN GROCERY STORE & SOUP BAR
Feed it Forward has created a unique “pay what you can” grocery store, bakery and coffee shop as well as a “Soup-Bar” concept restaurant at several local universities. Both of these establishments feed those living with food insecurity, and utilize rescued food.
The world's first Pay What You Can Grocery Store, Cafe, and Bakery is located at 2770 Dundas St West, Toronto ON, M6P 1Y3.
The store is open 7 days a week, 11am - 6pm.

If you are a restaurant, café, grocery store, or food manufacturing facility that routinely throws away consumable food items, please consider joining the growing network of food donors who are already making a difference. If you are the owner of a commercial kitchen or freezer facility, please consider offering your space for my team of qualified chefs to prepare meals for both programs or as a place to store the monthly meals for qualifying individuals and families.
