T&T Supermarkets (T&T) in partnership with food rescue agency, Second Harvest, has diverted over 200,000 pounds of potential food waste from landfill; preventing over 400,000 pounds of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere.

T&T began its partnership with Second Harvest in April 2021 and launched the program across all 29 stores by December of the same year. Using the Second Harvest Food Rescue App, healthy, surplus food is redistributed to frontline social service agencies serving people in need. 

“In addition to the social impact, food waste has serious implications for the environment and the economy and as a grocer, we know we’re in a unique position to make a difference,” said Tina Lee, CEO of T&T Supermarkets. “We couldn’t be prouder of our work to date with Second Harvest and look forward to doing more, as we expect all of our production units to be onboarded by June of this year.”

T&T, along with parent company Loblaw Companies Limited, has pledged to send zero food to landfill by 2030.
