EDMONTON — Too Good to Go has launched in Edmonton in partnership with Neo Juicery, Kinnikinnick, Meuwly’s, Sugared & Spice and more in order to reduce food waste and tackle food insecurity. Additionally, the organization has partnered with Edmonton’s Food Bank to support the work being done in the region.
“It is with great excitement that we launch in Edmonton — a vibrant city with a reputed culinary scene. We have seen a great response from local businesses and are confident that a large number of Edmontonians will be saving meals, as of today,” says Sam Kashani, Too Good to Go country manager. “We already have a very diverse and engaged group of partners on board who are conscious of the importance of saving surplus food both financially, socially and environmentally. We call on every business to join the movement so that the largest amount of meals can be saved.”
“Edmonton’s Food Bank was created 40 years ago because of two issues — hunger affecting the lives of many and edible food being wasted in the community,” says Marjorie Bencz, executive director of Edmonton’s Food Bank. “We are pleased to partner with the Too Good to Go app to help people in Edmonton access food economically while addressing the issue of surplus food.”
