Food Rescue is a food recovery program.We collect healthy yet imperfect-looking produce that do not meet the selling criteria of supermarket chains and redistribute it to the university community for free or by donation. Food is collected from Nesters Market and distributed at SFU Burnaby in Blusson Hall every Monday and Thursday from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm. Note: During the summer semester distributions only take place on Thursdays from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm.
The distributions happen throughout each academic semester at SFU and do not occur during exams and breaks between semesters.
