Mission & Goals:

Second Harvest rescues fresh, surplus food, that would otherwise go to waste, from grocery stores, manufacturers, distributors, farmers, restaurants and hotels. The food is delivered daily to more than 250 social service agencies across Toronto, feeding people experiencing hunger. Since 1985 Second Harvest has rescued and delivered over 125 million pounds of good food, thus preventing more than 70 million pounds of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere. For every dollar donated, the organization can rescue enough food to provide two meals to people in need. Second Harvest’s vision: No Waste. No Hunger.

How your contribution helps:

Every dollar donated allows Second Harvest to provide two healthy meals to people going hungry in Toronto. 40% of the people who receive food through Second Harvest recipient agencies are children and youth.
