Feeding the Need


As a result of the pandemic, 1 in 7 Canadians is now struggling to feed themselves and their families – an increase of more than 5 million people. The pandemic has also cancelled our biggest fundraiser, Toronto Taste, two years in a row – we are supporting more frontline food programs and working to get food to people in need with fewer funds. 

From March 1 to March 31, we asked all past attendees of Toronto Taste to donate what they would have spent on tickets this year and make a donation to our Feeding the Need campaign. Our goal was to raise funds to provide food for one million meals. And thanks to donors like you, we did it – and more!

The Daniels Corporation, our long-time Toronto Taste presenting sponsor, continued their incredible support by matching donations to our Feeding the Need campaign to a max of $250,000.

Thanks to their support, the generous support of the donors listed below, and incredible donors like you, Feeding the Need raised $513,612.05 which will enable us to provide food for 1,027,224 meals!

As a thank-you, we’ll send donors our exclusive Second Harvest Recipe Book with gourmet delights you can make at home from some of Canada’s best restaurants, selected just for Second Harvest, as well as nutritious recipes from our frontline partners. Click here for a sneak peek. 

You can still make a donation – the campaign gift webpage will be open for the month of April.
