Food Rescue: What We’ve Learned & Where We’re Going

DSCN1545On June 4, the Scaling Up Food Rescue Project’s Rubina Jamal and Scott Rowe held a working conference to present and then discuss findings that they gleaned over the past 12 months. The audience was welcomed by the District’s Mayor Richard Walton and took advantage of this open forum to ask questions and come up with solutions to make Food Rescue a reality on the North Shore.

Representatives from two area non-profits that provide meals in the community – Lizz Lindsay from Sharing Abundance and Annwen Loverin from Silver Harbour Senior Centre shared concrete examples of how Rubina and Scott’s Food Rescue model worked successfully for their organizations.

The stage is set for ongoing dialogue and action between Food Industry Providers, Community Service Organizations, Elected Officials and others who share a common goal of creating easy and safe access to nutritious food for our community.
