Vancouver, BC just hosted a massive free lunch for the public to curb unnecessary food waste. Wednesday’s lunch was the first Feeding The 5,000 in Canada, following countries including Australia, the U.S, and England, where it originated. Food was donated by local grocers because it was too misshapen or too close to its best-before date to sell in stores. All of the ingredients were safe to eat, noted Elaine Cheng, one of the organizers. Volunteers and student chefs cooked up hamburgers, veggie rolls, and tofu squares for hundreds of people outside the Vancouver Art Gallery. Odd-shaped cucumbers, and other imperfect but perfectly good veggies were also being given away.

The event comes on the heels of a landmark law in France Thursday, where grocery stores are now banned from wasting food. Instead, supermarkets must promise to donate unsold food to charities, or risk up to two years in jail and fines up to $100,000.  Unsold groceries that aren’t safe for human consumption can be used for animal feed or farm compost. In Canada, two grocery store chains (Real Canadian Superstore and no frills) recently began selling “Naturally Imperfect” produce at a reduced price.
