Alia Sunderji: Luv the Grub cooks up great things – United Way of the Lower Mainland

Alia Sunderji: Luv the Grub cooks up great things - United Way of the Lower MainlandEvery year across Metro Vancouver, residents throw out more than 100,000 tonnes of food. To put that in perspective, each day residents across our communities send more than 15,000 heads of lettuce, 40,000 tomatoes, 80,000 potatoes, 32,000 loaves of bread, and 70,000 cups of milk to the landfill.

Sustainability advocate and SFU lecturer Alia Sunderji wants to change this pattern of waste. She is the founder and coordinator of Luv the Grub, a Surrey-based social enterprise funded by United Way that partners with local farmers and markets to keep unwanted fruits and vegetables from entering landfills.
