About

Second Harvest is the largest food rescue organization in Canada and a global thought leader on food recovery. Working across the supply chain – from farm to retail – we capture surplus food before it ends up in landfill and has a negative environmental impact.

For support or more information please contact jessicaws@secondharvest.ca

Since 1985, Second Harvest has redirected more than 165 million pounds of food and prevented over 200 million pounds of greenhouse gas equivalents from entering our atmosphere. Supported by hundreds of corporations, foundations, and the community at large, Second Harvest rescues and delivers enough food to provide over 50,000 meals every day, benefiting a growing network of over 1,500 social service organizations across Canada.

Second Harvest also developed FoodRescue.ca, a free online platform that directly connects businesses with surplus, unsold food to local organizations to positively impact our environment and ensure good food gets to people who can use it. With the escalating global pandemic, Second Harvest is leading the Food Rescue Canadian Alliance (FRCA), which brings together government, private, and non-profit sectors to ensure food reaches the most vulnerable members of our communities, from coast-to-coast.



























































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































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.
