To rescue and deliver fresh, surplus food to feed people experiencing hunger.
No Waste. No Hunger.
About Our Charity
Second Harvest is a charity that rescues fresh, surplus food, that would otherwise go to waste, from grocery stores, manufacturers, distributors, farmers, restaurants and hotels. That food is delivered daily to over 220 social service agencies who feed more than 100,000 hungry Torontonians each month. Since 1985 Second Harvest has rescued and delivered over 100 million pounds of good food, thus preventing more than 50 million pounds of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere. Second Harvest’s food rescue program addresses two issues – hunger relief and waste reduction.
