The Food Recovery in Supermarkets Program (FRSP) is a sustainable and collective initiative to address the problems of precariousness and food waste. Initiated by Moisson Montreal in 2013, this program makes it possible to recover unsold food from supermarkets and redistribute it to people in vulnerable situations..

This agreement, made with certain supermarket banners and in collaboration with Quebec food banks, allows the recovery of foodstuff that are still good for consumption under 5 categories :

  • Frozen products (meat and substitutes)
  • Dairy products
  • Dry products
  • Bakery
  • Fruits and vegetables

For the year 2021-2022, the FRSP translates into:

  • 13 participating supermarkets
  • 124,195 Kg of recovered food, 49% of which is meat
  • $1,133,900 in market value
