#Throwback Thursday to June, 2018 when Feed it Forward launched their first pay what you can grocery store, cafe and bakery. 

In this new grocery store, customers take what they need, and give what money they can, or nothing if they cannot pay. Customers are limited to a day’s worth of food for a family so that the shop can feed as many people as possible, or people can sign up to have a box of packaged foods and produce with recipes sent to them on a biweekly basis.

Feed it Forward mission is to make a difference to the lives of fellow Canadians who are in need of assistance with securing nutritious food and regular balanced meals. To date feed it forward has served over 79300 meals, saved 134400 lbs food from landfills and filled 79300 bellies filled.
