Second Harvest

Second Harvest

Support a worthy Toronto Food Charity in the Second Harvest Foundation who’s mission is to help feed hungry people by picking up and preparing excess fresh food and delivering it daily to social service agencies in Toronto.

The vision is that no one need ever go hungry in the communities we serve.

Everyday Second Harvest picks up excess fresh food that would otherwise go to waste, and delivers it to approximately 250 social service programs in the Greater Toronto Area.  These social service programs are on the front lines of hunger everyday of our city and its the efforts of Second Harvest that keeps programs like these running.  Let’s  give them our support and help end the starvation on the streets of Toronto.
