More about Spent Goods:
Henderson Brewing Co provides their spent grains to Drake Commissary, an artisan bakery, who makes delicious food that is then sold by The Spent Goods Company via grocery stores, farmer’s markets, schools and restaurants. Their initiatives have been acknowledged most recently by CBC, BlogTO as “Toronto’s latest bread craze,” and NOW Magazine.

The Spent Goods Company is a Food transformer – they find complementary businesses to partner with, make new products with their by-products and get them in front of customers.

We exist in a world with overlapping crises that we wake up and face everyday. And so the next generation of climate action must tell a different story, and reflect a different reality. A reality where climate investments meaningfully improve the lives of residents, where every community in the country feels connected to the work, where we acknowledge the stakes and get down to the hard work of building a world that breaks down the individualistic silos and shows how much better life could be.
