It is a Food Rescue Program that rescues and distributes food such as fresh produce and bread collected from Calgary Interfaith Food Bank, Farmers' Market and local merchants that may have otherwise been thrown away.
Collected fresh produce, bread and other donations from suppliers, farmers' markets and others arrive at our 40,000 sq ft warehouse for distributed. Multiple agencies and organizations come to the Spinz-A-Round section of the warehouse to pick up the food to deliver to families around the city.
