Joke of the Day
A senior citizen was chatting with his 80 -year-old buddy.
“So I hear you’re getting married?”
“Do I know her?”
This woman, is she good looking?”
Is she a good cook?”
“Nah, she can’t cook very well.”
“Does she have lots of money?”
“Why in the world do you want to marry her then?”
“Because she can still drive!”
Food Distribution Pilot Project Started
The Fraser Valley Regional District and FoodMesh have started a pilot project across the region to reduce the amount of food waste being disposed of by finding higher uses.
Every year an estimated 170,000 tonnes of edible food, which is equivalent to 300 million meals, ends up in Canadian landfills. This amounts to an estimated cost of $31 to $107 billion of waste in the production, shipping and fair market value of the food.
The City of Chilliwack is encouraging Industry Food Donations in an effort to reduce food waste and distribute food more efficiently to those in need.
