Dear FoodFund Family,
My name is Divyansh and I’m the Founder of FoodFund. Before we start our journey together, I want to thank you for being here and I hope you can be a part of the community we are trying to build at FoodFund.
In Canada, nearly 58 per cent of all food produced is wasted. Grocery stores have strict cosmetic standards and anything that looks or feels a little different is rejected or dumped. Driving by a major retailer one night, I couldn’t help but feel unsettled by the contrast I saw: there were people disposing bins of produce into the dumpster and there was an aged man holding up a cardboard sign, making a plea for food. Why do 1 in 8 Canadians struggle to put food on the table when millions of pounds of it is thrown away ruthlessly? Trying to find answers, the spirit of FoodFund was born.
We believe that all food deserves plates and all plates deserve food. This is why we source recovered fruit and vegetables from farmers and deliver it to your doorstep. These fruits and vegetables are just as nutritious, delicious and fresh as all other produce. Our subscription box is affordable, convenient, customizable, and flavorful.
By subscribing, you help fight food waste. You ensure that farmers are rewarded for their harvest – perfect or imperfect. You improve access to affordable healthy eating options. You support a local company on a mission to make the community more food secure.
Just like people, produce comes in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colours and we think such diversity should be accepted! From all of us at FoodFund, I invite you to join our family and help build a fresh, frugal and flavorful community.
