Sobeys wins recognition for food rescue support


Sobeys has been recognized by Second Harvest as the 2023 Partner of the Year in the Food Donor category of the organization’s Food Rescue Awards.

Sobeys says its food rescue ambassadors, who support the company’s goal to reduce food waste by 50 percent by 2025, have helped to donate more than 9.6 million pounds of surplus foods to local charities.

Sobeys has been one of Second Harvest’s major food donor partners since 2002 and in 2022, the grocer launched a national partnership with Second Harvest which saw more than 500 stores from different banners across the country join the Second Harvest Food Rescue app.

According to Second Harvest, Sobeys is the retailer with the highest number of stores actively using the app and has grown to become the app’s largest food donor. In 2023, Sobeys is expanding its support to have all of its remaining stores implement the food rescue app.
