Loblaw is committing an additional $1 million to onboard its banner stores onto Second Harvest's FoodRescue.ca platform, which helps eliminate food waste and support local communities. 

Loblaw and Second Harvest, Canada's largest food rescue organization, have been partners for 35 years. There are currently 156 Loblaw locations using the FoodRescue.ca platform in Ontario and British Columbia. To date, these stores have used the platform to donate enough surplus unsold food to provide more than 500,000 meals to their local communities, and in doing so have prevented the release of more than 2.8 million kilograms of greenhouse gases.
