WASTE REDUCTION PARTNERS
Collection points are grocery stores and greengrocers in the Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie neighbourhood in Montreal where we collect unsold food on a weekly basis. By giving their unsold and still edible food items, merchants allow them to have a second life. Some are transformed into fruit spreads that some merchants resell, while others are redistributed to local organizations. Important players in the food system, food stores are progressively opening up to the idea of adopting this way of doing things as well as expressing their desire to improve their practice.
Important pillars of the community, the neighbourhood community organizations devote themselves to improving the daily lives of citizens in need; their goal is to eliminate inequalities. We are proud to collaborate with these local actors and to help build a more equitable and cooperative society that makes human beings its main priority.
