Air Canada redistributes inflight catering to those in need

0

Air Canada and the Air Canada Foundation are working with Canadian food rescue organisation, Second Harvest, to redistribute fresh food items from Air Canada’s in-flight kitchens as the airline begins suspending international and US transborder flights as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.

“Since we work with catering facilities across Canada, the network that Second Harvest offers through their national FoodRescue.ca platform enables us collectively to get these ready-to-eat food items to those who need it most as quickly as possible. To date, we have redistributed 2,330kg of fresh veggies, salads, sandwich wraps, muffins and milk, and there will be more to distribute in the coming days,” said Arielle Meloul-Wechsler, EVP, chief human resources and communications officer at Air Canada.

“We are grateful to Air Canada for taking a leadership role in national food rescue efforts and to the Air Canada Foundation for continuing its tradition of community support,” added Lori Nikkel, CEO of Second Harvest. “FoodRescue.ca is a safe food donation platform for both donors and non-profits because it leverages the good health and business practices already in place, so we can make the food recovery process more efficient even before a single donation happens.”
