Krish Thayaland, Manager of Training and Education at Second Harvest, facilitated a great workshop at the FCJ Refugee Centre about food date labelling. In the workshop, organized by our Food Security Program, Thayaland talked about the difference between “best before” and expiration dates, gave us a lot of useful information, and explained that “best before” doesn’t mean “bad after”, and how understanding that can really help to combat food waste. In this new episode of Borderless Voices he talks a little more about the workshop, and also about the important work carried out by Second Harvest, an organization that has been collaborating with FCJ Refugee Centre for many years.
