Food Rescue Yellowknife
Operating Since 2008
Food Rescue Yellowknife is a non-profit organization that receives food from local grocers which would otherwise be discarded and distributes it to non-profit organizations, schools and daycares throughout the city. Since 2008, our operation has saved and distributed over 1.4 million kgs (or 3 million lbs) of food for the people of Yellowknife. That food is valued at an average of $5.70 per kg for a total value of an estimated 8 million dollars. Learn more about our operation on our Resources page, or if you’re interested in volunteering please get in touch with us!
