Food for Thought
Throughout Canada and the world, food policy is shifting to ensure that fresh, high-quality food from grocery stores is no longer thrown out, but rather redistributed in meaningful ways that strengthen families and communities. The public at large is increasingly aware of the economic, environmental and ethical injustice of nutritious, costly fresh food going to waste.
The London Food Coalition Inc. is dedicated to creating food prosperity initiatives that assert fresh food as a fundamental right. Fresh food is integral to many different community programs in the city. This initiative provides essential resources for family cooking programs, nutritional and educational programming, camp programs, and healthy meals for children and families. Furthermore, this coalition reduces the costs of food for London organizations.
Effective July 2021, the London Food Coalition became an incorporated, registered Canadian charity (charity reg. #772044673RR0001). With this, our goals or purposes have changed:
Our Goals are:
To improve the efficiency of other registered charities and public schools by redistributing fresh, rescued food at below market rates to registered charities and public schools for their programs;
To carry out activities ancillary and incidental to the above charitable purpose.
