A Grocery Store in Vancouver Has a “Pay What You Feel Option” to Fight Food Insecurity

Cool Story - A Grocery Store in Vancouver Has a “Pay What You Feel Option” to Fight Food Insecurity

In the country of Canada, one in six kids suffer from food insecurity. Canada also throws out 35.5 million tonnes of food each year. The Food Stash Foundation in Vancouver has come up with a way to combat this issue. They have opened up the Rescued Food Market, a grocery store with a twist. Shoppers can choose to donate money to keep the store running, and the amount they donate. Shoppers can also create their own food bags, taking as much or as little as they need.

 The Rescued Food Market isn’t providing shoppers with just any food. The Food Stash Foundation rescues produce that would have otherwise been thrown out, and donates it to the store. The produce is high quality and has helped families that would have had to go hungry. Over 30,000 kilograms of food has been saved every month, either bringing it to families in need or to the store so they can pick it themselves.
