Feeding Canadians
Not Landfills
Feed It Forward is a Toronto based Canadian not for profit organization 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

The Feed it Forward Free Food App builds stronger communities and healthier individuals by allowing users to share food instead of discarding it.

It does this by creating a space where pictures of free food, along with information detailing the type and quantity of the food, can be uploaded, making the food accessible to anyone else using the app. Once the food is uploaded it is featured on a pinging map displaying the portions and types of food available, along with the time and locations it can be picked up.

This app is revolutionary for those living within communities in need as it means they will not have to worry if they can afford their next meal. It will also revolutionize the local food industry, which is already struggling right now, by allowing restaurants, markets, and farmers to create new customers by supplying them with free food that would otherwise be wasted.

There is an additional feature that serves as a carbon footprint calculator which calculates the carbon emissions saved from the atmosphere when each accepted product is diverted from landfills. This app works towards replacing food insecurity with food accessibility by feeding the world and not its landfills. Feed it Forward Free Food App presents a better future for all of us by making food waste a thing of the past.

Our Mission

Our mission is two-fold: to save perfectly good food that would otherwise be destined for landfills and to support Canadians 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.

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.
Holiday hours may differ.

We're open every day of the week
