Now brought to you by Scout Magazine.

There are those who talk and those who do. Tristan Jagger is in the latter camp and Vancouver is better for it. Having launched Vancouver Food Runners at the beginning of the pandemic last year, her charity has helped address and bridge the gap of food waste in the community using innovative app technology. With a roster of over 1,200 volunteers, Vancouver Food Runners has rescued over 275,000 pounds of food, which is equivalent to over 229,000 meals. This is an amazing accomplishment and we were thrilled to chat with her on how this idea came to be, how it works and what's it's been like navigating things during the pandemic along with raising four young children. Tristan is great and delivers with plenty of heart and candidness.  We're confident you'll love this one. 

If you'd like to become a volunteer for Vancouver Food Runners, just download the app and sign up. It's easy and takes only a few minutes. They'll even send you a free t shirt if you do over 20 deliveries.


***Scout is one of Vancouver’s leading food and culture magazines. If you’re wanting to learn more about the city’s food and cultural sphere with regards to community news, new restaurant openings, essential guides to some of the city’s best offerings as well as who’s hiring, Scout is where you should go. They also have a sister website called Islandist. Same type of content only Island driven. That’s Islandist.ca.
We’re proud to have Scout as our presenting sponsor as we believe what they “Scout out” is an excellent compliment to what we’re offering here with Track and Food. Do check them out.
