Yesterday, Minister Bibeau launched the $50 million Surplus Food Rescue Program, which aims to move surplus food commodities through the food system as efficiently as possible to help vulnerable Canadians. The Surplus Food Rescue Program has two core objectives:

  • Provide assistance to organizations serving vulnerable populations to acquire and process surplus commodities and food that would otherwise be lost or destroyed and distribute them to populations in need.
  • Connect surplus food commodities to vulnerable populations to avoid food waste.

Applications are being accepted until July 15 beginning immediately.
