Canadians throw out almost 2.2 million tonnes of edible food every year, according to the National Zero Waste Council. That’s the same weight as six Empire State Buildings. Meanwhile, there are about 4.4 million Canadians who don’t have enough food to eat.  

Vancouver Food Runners is an organization that collects food that would otherwise be thrown out and gives it to those in need. While masking and social distancing, reporter Baneet Braich tags along with one of their volunteers for the day.
