         Join us for the 2020 Second Harvest Hero Fundraiser

Toronto’s most heroic challenge is to end hunger and food waste. Over one billion pounds of perfectly good, nutritious food is wasted annually in the GTA, while 1 in 7 families experience hunger. Second Harvest acts as the bridge between this healthy food and those that need it most in our city. We work across the supply chain from farm to retail to rescue and distribute surplus perishable, nutrient-dense food to over 2,000 social service agencies, helping the most vulnerable people in Toronto and across Canada.

Second Harvest needs the support of Heroes like YOU to help us rescue this food before it gets to landfill and provide nutritious meals to those in need. Food from Second Harvest is provided free of charge to a wide variety of social service agencies including homeless shelters, women's shelters, kid's lunch and after school programs, centres for people experiencing mental health or addiction issues, and many other community resource centers where people in need can access basic services. For every dollar you raise, Second Harvest is able to provide two healthy meals for people in need.  So why not support us? 

This year’s campaign goal is $375,000 - providing close to 800,000 meals for our community!
