#tbt to earlier this week when we rescued and diverted 550lbs of produce, 66L of milk, 22kg of yoghurt, 4.4kg of cheese, 132kg of meat and 264 eggs (thank you mother hens!)... . ...All sorted and separated into 22 grocery boxes for our Rescued Food Box program, which strives to reduce waste and provide high quality food to families that otherwise would not have access to it. โ€œOh hey @foodstashfoundation do you guys and girls do a door to door delivery?!โ€ YES! With a lot of help from our volunteers, we do! Hereโ€™s the catch people...the more food we rescue, the more families that we can help! Simple right? We think so, which is why our 5-year plan is to service a staggering 250 households by 2022! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜Š . This week, we composted 364.5lbs of food, which represents just 15% of the total food rescued. So what does that mean? Simply put, it means that 85% of โ€œfood wasteโ€ is actually...wait for it...good to eat!??!?! ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคจ Woah. . All this to say, if you think thatโ€™s as insane as we do, please spread the Food Stash love and help raise awareness around this issue in whatever way makes sense to you! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ . . . . . #foodstashfoundation #zerowaste #lovefoodhatewaste #foodwaste #foodrescue #foodrecovery #yvr #yvrfoodie #foodforthought #dailyhive #imperfectproduce #nofoodwaste at YVR Prep

September is here and itโ€™s the start of something BIG! In the coming month we will be scaling our operation (quite literally, we just bought a weighing scale!) to include more families, more boxes and even more smiling faces with well fed tummies! Hereโ€™s a snap of todayโ€™s #weeklyfoodstash before getting boxed up and on the road... . HUGE thank you to our awesome volunteers who make this all possible, you know who you are! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Special thanks to young Nathaniel for showing up on the Monday of a long weekend ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ If you swipe to the right youโ€™ll notice that each of our 22 families this week received a whopping 46lbs of food! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ In fact, according to our new super advanced data collecting device (read: weighing scale), #foodstashfoundation diverted over 1,000lbs of produce alone from the waste pile this week, half of which made it into our boxes. Thatโ€™s as heavy as a grand piano by the way ๐ŸŽน YIKES! But why stop there... . 110L of #MILK 113kg of #YOGURT 17kg of #CHEESE 22kg of #MEAT 564 #EGGS . ...all rescued, edible, perfectly delicious and nutritious food that would otherwise be thrown out and discarded. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ . . . . . #foodstashfoundation #zerowaste #lovefoodhatewaste #foodwaste #foodrescue #foodrecovery #yvr #yvrfoodie #foodforthought #dailyhive #imperfectproduce #nofoodwaste at YVR Prep
