Due to the immediate change to RED zone, Restaurants can support these organizations or recoup some losses:
Cooking for a Cause
Offering to purchase 2000 frozen meals at $5 each = $10,000
- They can purchase this weekend, and would pick up next week
- Parkdale Food Centre would provide the containers for the food to be frozen direct to the restaurant
- If restaurants are interested to email Erica and Megan at Parkdale Food Centre: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
Parkdale Food Centre
Has the ability to purchase good quality fresh inventory from restaurants.
For restaurants that have inventory to sell, they can connect with Simon via email or phone 613-234-9396
Food for Thought
Has the ability to defray restaurants some amount for their loss.
If there is a lot of food available in a timely manner we can cancel our own cooking for tomorrow and use restaurant surplus. No waste is a priority.
“If you give me contacts right now we will get on the horn and start organizing”
For restaurants or groups to connect direct with: Sylvain de Margerie, Sylvain@FoodforThought.cafe, (613) 277-6630
Ottawa Food Bank
They can help reduce food waste, but not in position to purchase.
They will pick up direct from the restaurant and distribute.
