Help us to help others locally & internationally

what we do

Feed those in need

1,000,000,000
People are affected by hunger worldwide.
We make dehydrated soup and fruit mixes for international distribution.

Reduce food waste

25 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables in Ontario is usually plowed back into the soil or sent for disposal.
We make use of this good produce, thereby reducing waste.

Help us to help others locally & internationally

How we help

produce is donated

We are thankful to local growers who donate their unmarketable produce to our facility! These donated vegetables and fruits enable us to manufacture dehydrated vegetable mix and fruit snacks.

Food mix is created

Nutritious packaged food mixes have a long shelf-life which allows us to participate in food rescue initiatives to feed those who are hungry locally, nationally, and internationally.
