Second Harvest is Canada’s largest food rescue charity with a dual mission of environmental protection and hunger relief.
Through direct delivery and our online platform FoodRescue.ca we recover nutritious, unsold food from more than 1,200 donors and redistribute it to a broad network of 1,080 social service organizations in Ontario and BC. Our free, essential service helps nourish people through school programs, seniors’ centres, shelters, food banks, and regional food hubs.
In 35 years, Second Harvest has rescued over 155 million pounds of healthy food, keeping it out of landfills and preventing 192 million pounds of greenhouse gases from entering our atmosphere.
Our vision: No Waste. No Hunger.
