NEW WESTMINSTER B.C. – Danison Buan drops by his local supermarket three times a week to pick up unsold food that the store would otherwise throw away.
After working in a restaurant for years Buan knows a lot of good food goes to waste.
So he rescues “them” to feed those in need thru a project called “Re-Food”.
From produce that are un-appealing but still perfectly edible to meat and dairy products that are near dated, Buan takes them away and re-purposes them thru charities that get smoothies and fresh food to cook with
He also saves the supermarket some costs in compost fees.
In January Buan will launch a 50-50 campaign fundraiser to raise $50,000 for 50,000 meals and to raise more awareness.
