Surplus Food Rescue Program: Step 1: What this program offers
Step 1. What this program offers
The Surplus Food Rescue Program is part of the government of Canada’s emergency response to the current COVID-19 crisis. This is a time-limited program to help manage and redirect existing surpluses to organizations addressing food insecurity and to avoid food waste. It will provide an opportunity for non-profit and for-profit organizations across the supply chain to bid on significant volumes of surplus products at the cost of production or less, processing them where necessary for longer shelf life and distributing to food serving agencies.
Applicants under this program may be eligible to receive a maximum of $20 million unless the organization can make a case to move commodities in all categories.
