Save More, Waste Less: Food Challenge

The Food Challenge

Join our 4-week challenge designed to empower you with the practical knowledge and skills to prevent food waste at home and make the most of the fruits and vegetables you buy. The challenge begins on February 27! Don’t miss out!

Did you know that the small things you do to prevent food waste could save you up to $1300 a year? Are you ready to reduce your food waste and save up to $100 per month in groceries? 

Why Fruits and Vegetables?

Approximately 45% of the food that we waste at home is fruits and vegetables. In Canada, that amounts to over 1 million tonnes of food wasted each year, the equivalent of $6.2 billion. 

These perishable staples are ones we often buy too much of, and then forget about or store incorrectly.

Each week we’ll guide you with easy to action, practical tips on how to keep those greens and vibrant fruits fresher for longer.

Program Highlights:

  • Tips delivered by text from our food waste expert and registered dietician. 
  • Digest the tips and take action on YOUR schedule. We know you are busy, so no zooms, meetings, or set times! 
  • Weekly videos and resources that will help you plan and shop wisely, teach you where and how to store your food correctly, and share ideas for when things don’t go to plan! 
  • Engaging challenges to make saving food  a fun and rewarding habit.
  • First 500 registrants receive an at home food-saving toolkit.

Win Big by Saving Food:

Upon completion of the challenge, participants will be entered to win a $500 grocery gift card! Groceries are more expensive than ever. Let us pay for your next order, and make the food that comes in your home last longer.  A win for your wallet and the planet.
