About Us

We are passionate about keeping edible food out of the landfills and redistributing it in our community! According to Food Waste Statistics Canada every day, approximately 1.2 million tomatoes, 1.2 million apples, 2.4 million potatoes, 650,000 loaves of bread, 640,000 bananas, one million cups of milk, 470,000 eggs, and 139,000 lettuce heads are wasted. Canada’s yearly food waste is equivalent to 9.8 million tons of CO2. Redirecting or rescuing surplus edible food could save 3.82 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per ton of food. In 2023 Echo Food Rescue saved 115,000 pounds of food and redirected it back to the people of Lacombe and surrounding areas!

Volunteer

We would love to have you as a volunteer! Food rescue volunteers pick up, sort and distribute food, all while providing a friendly face for our guests. Our food comes from grocery stores, restaurants and businesses that we partner with. Email christina@echolacombe.ca and we will set up a time for you to meet with us at the food rescue and see what we do.

Donate Food

The more food donations we can get, the more food we can redistribute and keep from the landfill. If you are a restaurant owner who has extra food left after your day is over, a store owner with stock that has expired or a farm with less then perfect produce we would love to chat with you! You can take a look at what we do and contact us here!
