Where does the food come from?
We receive food through the Second Harvest Food Rescue App. Some of the food comes in large quantities and some is small donations from local partners.
Is rescued food safe to eat?
Some food that we receive is past the before date, but that doesn't mean that it is bad. Every day in Canada good food is thrown in the landfill for various reasons. This adds up to 11.2 metric tonnes of edible food waste in Canada; or approximately $49.46 billion dollars.
What should I expect?
We've opened our doors at the Blue Door Project in downtown Brandon. Come see us between 5 pm and 7 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Street parking is available and we accept cash or debit transactions.
Following health regulations, all customers will be required to wear face masks and maintain social distancing.
All food comes from facilities that are up to date with local public health requirements and is transported and stored safely.
The best before date is a suggested expiry date, as such any food that is consumed past the before date is at the consumers' discretion.
