         Join us for the 2019 Second Harvest Hero Fundraiser

Two of Toronto’s biggest issues are excess food waste and hunger. Over one billion pounds of food is wasted annually in the GTA, while 40% of Torontonians reported having gone an entire day without eating because they weren’t able to afford food. Second Harvest works to make the connection and tackle both of these issues. We work across the supply chain from farmer to retail to capture surplus food and delivery it to social service agencies, helping the most vulnerable people in Toronto.

Second Harvest needs the support of Heroes like YOU to help us rescue food before it gets to landfill and provide nutritious meals to those in need. We support a wide variety of agencies ranging from shelters for the homeless to overdose prevention centres to afterschool programs, and many in between. For every dollar you fundraise, Second Harvest is able to provide two healthy meals for people in need. So why not support us?

This year’s campaign goal is $370,000 – providing 740,000 meals, which could feed almost 400 families for an entire year!

Inspired to run your own fundraiser? We’re here to help! We’ll support you in planning as well as with a customized website, Hero masks and capes, and more! For tips & resources and to learn more about the Hero campaign, please visit secondharvesthero.ca.
