At Peko, we’re all about being small but mighty. Since May 2021, we’ve saved over 150,000 pounds of produce from going to waste and generated over $550,000 of savings for our customers. Moreover, we’re incredibly proud of the impact we’ve had through our community partnerships and are excited to share some numbers surrounding our partnership with Food Stash, a Vancouver-based charity dedicated to giving dignified access to people experiencing food insecurity.

What We've Accomplished
Since Peko and Food Stash first began collaborating in October 2022, 60% of Peko’s total proceeds have gone to Food Stash. This support has contributed to Food Stash being able to feed more than 350 food-insecure individuals weekly, while also supplying rescued food to over 30 charities that collectively serve about 15,000 community members a week.

As of January 2023, Peko has moved 100% of operations to our Food Stash partnership compared to 25% of operations in 2022. To put this in perspective, this exciting move has allowed over 800 Peko boxes to be packed by dedicated Food Stash volunteers in January alone. This generated $3,300 that went towards supporting Food Stash’s other community programs. The Peko boxes packed in January resulted in Food Stash being able to pack 60 of their own rescued food boxes, which is actually 15% of their monthly boxes. To date, a grand total of 1767 Peko boxes have been packed by Food Stash volunteers!

The impact Peko has had through our community partnerships would not be possible without all of our incredible customers who continue to support our mission of reducing food waste in Canada and empowering access to affordable, healthy diets. We thank you for your support.

While Peko is wrapping up our pilot with Food Stash by February 20, 2023, we are continuing our partnership in a different manner. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
