Did you know that grocery stores are throwing away 30 to 45 large bins perfectly edible food each week? They throw away the food about a week before the best before date; but the best before date is not the expiry date there is a lot of life left in that food!

 Did you know that food waste is becoming a big problem for the environment? That food ends up in landfills and gives off methane gas into the air we breathe and leachare into the soil !

Millgrove School Chase The Future is a small group of students Who want Hamilton to hire trucks to go to grocery stores and pick up food that is near the best before date as well as fresh food. The trucks could bring the food to food banks and help people put food on their plates. It just makes sense!  

 The children have support from all of greater Hamilton food banks and are now approaching a meeting with the Hamilton city health Council on Monday, June 19; they need as many signatures as we can possibly gather to put on the desk in front of the mayor .
