Second Harvest

This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Second Harvest

Second Harvest is the largest food rescue organization in Canada and is a global thought leader on food recovery. They work to capture surplus food before it ends up in the landfill, negatively impacting our environment. Second Harvest has developed and launched Foodrescue.ca, an innovative, user-friendly online platform that serves as a conduit between businesses with excess food and community agencies offering food programs, ensuring that good food can be rescued on demand and used to meet the needs of those living with hunger in our city. These funds will allow Second Harvest to expand this initiative with a special focus on Scarborough.
