No Waste. No Hunger.

Second Harvest is the largest food rescue organization in Canada and global thought leader on food recovery. They have a dual mission of environmental protection and hunger relief.

Every year 58% of the food produced in Canada is either lost or wasted

This statistic is even more shocking in this climate of uncertainty when the impact of this global pandemic is being felt most severely by communities who were already living on the edge of food insecurity.

Second Harvest works relentlessly to capture surplus food before it ends up in the landfill and redistributes it to hungry families around the country.

Maple & Marigold has created this digital pantry cookbook with recipes, food ideas and tips as a way of supporting those who need our help.

Hi, I’m Puneeta!

I’m the founder of

10 years ago, I had a Sunday night routine that I was ashamed of. Every Sunday, after my kids were in bed, I would clean out the fridge and get organized for the week. You see, I prepared meals every weekend and received comfort in knowing that despite the exhausting weekly routine we could all eat at home in the evening.

Except that’s not how it turned out. On Sunday nights, I would take the nourishing, delicious meals that I had prepared for my family the previous week and throw them away. We couldn’t even make the time to sit down and eat the meals I had prepared, because of how grueling our schedule was.

In trying to balance the pressures of full-time work and growing children, I was making choices in the kitchen that just did not work. I didn’t have the know-how or the tools.

Today, I have both and I am here to share them with you.

Over years of trial and error, my kitchen habits have evolved. I have learned how important food is to our physical and mental well-being and how much we take it for granted.

That is how this digital cookbook came to be.

Through the purchase of this eBook you can better nourish yourselves and your family, and help others do the same.
