FOOD FOR LIFE

Since its inception in 1995, Food for Life has rescued over 26 million pounds of food by collecting surplus perishable food (fruit and vegetables, dairy, meat, and prepared foods) from both retail and wholesale food suppliers and grocery stores. They are the largest food rescue organization in Halton and Hamilton.  Food for Life holds a unique niche among Canadian food relief charities in that they focus on redistributing fresh, nutritious food. Their clients tell them that they are often not able to afford fresh food and that having access to this healthy food allows them to focus on obtaining other life essentials as they work towards no longer relying on the services.  By diverting over 4.9 million pounds of good food last year, Food for Life was able to reduce the equivalent of 7 million kilograms of greenhouse gases.
 
The Rotary Club of Hamilton Stoney Creek is proud to support and promote Food For Life and all the good they do.
