Thrifty Foods is helping people in need by contributing non-sellable perishable food, such as fresh produce, dairy, meat and grocery surplus (that is normally composted or thrown out), to the Food Rescue Distribution Centre in Esquimalt, B.C. 

“We can redistribute [the food] to those who are hungry in our community,” Ralph Mundel, senior director of operations for Thrifty Foods, told Chek News.

The food items are being collected from nine participating Thrifty Foods stores, cleaned and sorted, and then redistributed by the Mustard Seed Street Church to 40 partners of the Food Share Network. 

The supply will provide nutritious food to nearly 50,000 people across the Capital Region, the news report said.
