Retail Food Program
verb: Collect gradually
historical: Gather (leftover grain) after a harvest
As part of our mission to glean food for people in need we partner with retailers to collect surplus food. This food may be considered surplus due to packaging changes, overstock, damaged exterior packaging, or for a variety of other reasons. The Retail Food Program helps Edmonton’s Food Bank redistribute more food and helps us provide a greater variety of food to our clients. This food includes both non-perishable and perishable items, such as hot cereals, bread, packaged nuts, and baking ingredients.
The Retail Food Program allows retailers to build relationships in the community while helping Edmontonians who are hungry. It can also help retailers achieve their environmental and Corporate Social Responsibility objectives.
