Eatonomy is an online store that will sell and deliver short-dated and surplus food items that are massively discounted, yet perfectly consumable. Get more bang for your buck, and save the environment while you're at it!
We were shocked to learn that even in today's tough economy, where food prices are constantly on the rise, that $31 billion worth of food is wasted every year in Canada. Being university students, we know all too well, the frustration of walking out of the grocery store having spent our entire food budget - with not much to show for it. We believed that it wasn't right that on one hand food was getting more and more difficult to afford, while on the other hand, it was contributing to record levels of food waste in Canada. We wanted to do something about it, and that's when the idea for Eatonomy was born.
