Groceries are super expensive these days. There's no denying it - grocery shopping is quickly becoming the top expense for many Canadians. If you're wondering why, look no further than this article about the impact of inflation in Canada right now.\nNot only do budgetary considerations come into play when deciding what to buy, but like many Canadians, there is much concern about food waste. Not only individuals but businesses contribute to over half the food being thrown away.\nTo combat this issue, IGA has partnered up with FoodHero, a local app that helps people save money on fresh, perfectly edible surplus food. Thanks to this, Quebeckers can prevent food waste while saving up to 60% off on some products!\nHow it works is simple. Download the FoodHero app, locate your closest participating IGA, and shop! You simply fill a shopping cart and then decide at what time you'll pick up your purchase.\nThe way you store #produce can impact the shelf life of your #food and cause more #waste.We've got 5 #FoodHero #Tips for proper food storage in your home 🍏#WasteNot #ZeroWaste #SaveMore #WasteLesshttps://t.co/DqBVy9vooE pic.twitter.com/Bxn0QqelEk— FoodHero (@realfoodhero) June 14, 2019\nFoodHero is an ingenious app developed by a local team which aims to reduce the impact of food waste in Quebec.\nThe products you'll see on the app are products that are close to being thrown away such as nearly expired goods, "ugly" produce, damaged packaging, and day-old prepared meals.\nView this post on Instagram Les smoothies Loop, une exclusivité d'IGA!
