Are You a #FoodDefender? Join the Waste Wise Resolution Challenge

by | Jan 12, 2021 | Food Waste

It’s traditional to start a new year with New Year’s resolutions, but we have a resolution that’s good for you and the planet: take our Waste Wise Resolution Challenge and start a 5-week journey as a #FoodDefender!

For more than 35 years Second Harvest has been taking the challenge to reduce the amount of good food that goes to waste. With rising food insecurity and climate changes, we need you to take that challenge with us.  

With the support of Loblaws, our long-time partner, we’re on a mission to give Canadians the tools they need to be a #FoodDefender. From smart grocery lists to easy composting, our five simple resolutions come with four challenges each, a Waste Wise Calendar to keep you on track, and regular tips to help slash your food waste, slash your budget and protect the environment! 

For a Canada with No Waste. No Hunger, take the Waste Wise Resolution Challenge today to get started!
