Our favourite things – LeftOvers Calgary
I am so impressed by the non-profit organization LeftOvers Calgary. They rescue discarded perishable food from processing, transport, grocery stores, restaurants, bakeries and kitchens before it is thrown in the garbage. Then they ensure that this fresh food gets into the kitchens of service agencies in need such as the Calgary Drop-In Centre, Calgary Interfaith Food Bank, Alpha House, Making Changes Association and Inn from the Cold. LeftOvers Calgary is working on fixing a small portion of a very large problem, a problem that is very important to me as a dietitian. Volunteer food rescuers are always in need!
