Food waste has become a dangerous habit for Canadians and continues to be a growing concern both economically and environmentally. However, there is hope for the future of food waste in Canada thanks to individuals and organizations working towards innovative solutions. One of these organizations is ReFeed Farms.
Beginning in Langley, British Columbia, ReFeed Farms was created to address food insecurity by utilizing a zero-waste food system. This system was created in partnership with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank (GVFB) and is called Circular Nutrition™.
Stuart Lilley, Founder of ReFood Farms, explained his motivation for ReFeed Farms by saying “I saw firsthand how much food was being wasted in our community, and I knew with the right system in place how much impact we could create. I couldn’t sit by and do nothing when I knew how to solve it.”
To spread awareness about food waste and their mission, ReFood Farms, GVFB, and Rich&Jay Creative have released a short documentary titled “Rethinking Food”. This 9-minute film explains the Circular Nutrition™ process while sharing an impactful message to take care of our food system.Source : Small Farm Canada
