Every day, thousands of pounds of edible fruits and vegetables go to the landfill.
There are ways to reduce our likelihood of creating food waste, but sometimes our backyard bounty is too much even for those most diligent at preserving the harvest.
Share your surplus produce with those in our community who don’t have access to fresh healthy food. No donation is too small, and donations are accepted year-round.
These organizations in North Vancouver will accept donations of fresh produce from individuals on behalf of those in need in our community. Contact each organization directly for details.
