Second Harvest's mission is to rescue and deliver fresh, surplus food to feed people experiencing hunger. Every year, we rescue over 10 million pounds of fresh, healthy, perishable foods — focusing on protein, dairy and produce – and deliver to 253 social service agencies in the Toronto area and 15 Food Hubs across Ontario.
Want to get involved in the good work we do?
Second Harvest needs volunteers for Toronto Taste, our single largest fundraiser, on Sunday June 3rd. This legendary culinary event takes place lakeside, at Corus Quay, and features 60 top chefs, 30 beverage purveyors, and 1,500 food lovers coming together in support of Second Harvest’s food rescue program.
Your Impact? — 1 hour of your time at Toronto Taste equals 971 meals to our neighbours in need!
