In 2017, Second Harvest rescued and delivered 10.7 million pounds of fresh, nutritious food across the city. Supported by the commitment of 472 food donors, 1991 volunteers and nearly 10,000 financial and in-kind supporters, we were able to deliver enough food for over 250 agencies providing over 30,000 meals each day, all year round.
We had a tremendously busy Holiday season in an effort to ensure that our neighbours in need were able to enjoy the warmth and nourishment of holiday meals. Our annual Turkey Drive raised 7,936 turkeys that were distributed to our network of agencies as well as to individual families.
The Holiday season is over, but the need for nutritious food is continues. With over 375,000 children, adults and seniors in Toronto experiencing food insecurity, and visits to food banks reaching almost 1 million, there is still much work that needs to be done and we need your help to ensure that those in need continue to receive daily nourishment.
