WHAT IS FOOD FIGHT?

Since 2015, the Food Fight program, carried out in partnership with the Fonds Éco IGA, has held free educational workshops for people across Quebec and New Brunswick to provide them with simple, practical advice to help fight food waste. It’s also a community of mutual support that exchanges information, including blog posts written by our experts, and resources to help people improve their daily practices. The 6th edition of the Food Fight tour will take place virtually from February to June 2021. At the moment, educational workshops are only given in French.

2021 EDITION

In 2021, food waste experts from Earth Day will be adapting to the current public health situation and holding free online workshops for various workplaces and the general public.
