ABOUT THE LEFTOVERS FOUNDATION
The Leftovers Foundation’s mission is to reduce food waste and prevent the greenhouse gas emissions caused when good food is left to rot. We believe one of the best ways to do that is to get the food to community organizations working with vulnerable populations, ensuring that it can be used where food is most needed. Our flagship program, Rescue Food, mobilizes volunteers through a dedicated app to connect local vendors who have surplus food to service agencies running food access programming. Leftovers currently operates in Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Hinton, and Airdrie. Leftovers is currently a fully remote organization and has no physical offices. The majority of staff work from home.
OUR COMMITMENT TO INCLUSION, EQUITY, DIVERSITY, AND ACCESSIBILITY (IDEA)
The team at the Leftovers Foundation recognizes that issues within our food systems are deeply rooted in racial, economic, and social inequities. We want to be an organization working towards positive change, acknowledging our shortcomings, and committing to doing better. We are at the beginning of a continual journey towards addressing the systems of oppression that impact marginalized communities.
