Trend Alert: Surplus Food Rescue Program
+ The federal government through Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada recently announced a new “Surplus Food Rescue Program” designed “to support Canada’s food system, food processors, and food producers, and distributors to help ensure food availability for all Canadians. Funding will be used to help manage and redirect existing surpluses to organizations addressing food insecurity and ensure that these surplus products are not wasted.” It is one of many ongoing initiatives to assist the public and industry alike, as we all navigate the related challenges brought on by the world pandemic.
