Food Rescue (Yellowknife) supports organizations who feed the homeless and otherwise nutritionally or socially disadvantaged individuals through donations of reclaimed food. In 2017/2018, with the help of approximately 30 volunteers, we operated approximately 245 days from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, recovering an average of 598 kg of food a day, and distributed 146,510 kg of food to our recipient organizations. Since starting operation in June 2008, Food Rescue has distributed over 1,240,000 kg to help feed those in need.
While not really a new program, last year we hired an additional staff person, a Site Coordinator, to provide greater consistency in our service and volunteer relief. This is in support of the ongoing program described above.
