    Food Rescue distribution


    Food Rescue is a food recovery program. We collect healthy fruits and vegetables that are deemed as surplus and un-salable according to food industry standards and redistribute it to the university community. Food is collected from Nesters Market and redistributed at SFU Burnaby on a weekly basis. 

    How it works

    Drop by our Food Rescue distribution location at the posted date and time, and take home some produce! We will be accepting donations of any amount and will be selling our tote bags on site for $4 each, in case you don't have a bag.

    Welcoming Jao, Our New Communications & Operations Manager

    Growing up in Vancouver, it was inevitable that I would fall in love with the forests and mountains that surround the city. Overtime, my interests in our environment has developed into a passion for sustainability and protecting spaces and places so that everyone can enjoy them. With this in mind, I began my undergraduate studies at SFU as a major in Communication with minors in Resource & Environmental Management and Publishing. Over the years I have focused on topics such as urban space reactivation, social sustainability, and environmental communication. While my background is in graphic design and multimedia, my passion is in sustainability. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work for you, our members, in creating a creative, fun, and inclusive environment to grow as sustainability leaders. I look forward to helping our community grow and adopt sustainable lifestyles.
