About Second Harvest:
This is an opportunity to play a key role in the continued success and growth of the largest food rescue program in Canada.
Second Harvest is the largest food rescue organization in Canada and a global thought leader on food recovery. With a goal to drastically reduce the amount of food wasted while ensuring people have access to the good, healthy food they need for success, Second Harvest works across the supply chain from farmer to retail to capture surplus food before it ends up in the landfill and negatively impacts our environment.
Since 1985 we have rescued and delivered more than 127 million pounds of food and prevented over 70 million pounds of greenhouse gas equivalents from entering our atmosphere. Currently, Second Harvest rescues food from over 470 donors and delivers that food to over 253 social service agencies in Toronto and food hubs across Ontario, providing enough food for 30,000 meals a day.
No Waste. No Hunger.
