Fighting Food Waste & Having Impact

In 2020, Puneeta released the How to SHOP YOUR PANTRY digital guide. What started out as a simple pantry challenge during the early months of the pandemic rapidly became a 48-page collection of pantry-forward recipes and tips designed to help people nourish their families and reduce food waste.

Through the guide, Puneeta is helping readers cook more at home, reduce what they throw away and improve the dire problem of food scarcity and hunger.

This fund-raising endeavour has so far donated $2,400 to Second Harvest, Canada’s foremost food rescue organization.

2021 Update from Puneeta

Thank you so much for supporting the How to SHOP YOUR PANTRY guide in 2020. It was a challenging year for people and even more so for those standing in the long lineups at the community food banks.

My intention with this guide was to help readers cook more at home, reduce what’s thrown away and support the community, all causes very close to my heart. And we did it!

I am beyond delighted to report that our efforts last year helped donate $2,400 to Second Harvest. That’s enough to feed a 4-person family with 3 square meals a day for 1.3 YEARS!

I am incredibly grateful for the people who bought the book, shared about it, told a friend or two, liked and commented and more. This community’s support, YOUR SUPPORT, HELPED FEED A 4-PERSON FAMILY WITH 3 SQUARE MEALS A DAY FOR 1.3 YEARS.

Let that sink in for a minute!

If you missed out on buying your copy of How to SHOP YOUR PANTRY, look out for the 2nd edition coming up soon.
