Second Harvest is the largest food rescue organization in Canada and global thought leader on food recovery. We work across the supply chain from farm to retail to capture surplus food before it ends up in the landfill which negatively impacts our environment.

Last year, we recovered more than 22.3 million pounds of nutritious, unsold food — focusing on protein, dairy and produce — we rescued before it became waste and redistributed to a broad network of 2,300 social service organizations. Supported by hundreds of corporations, foundations, and the community at large, we rescue and redistribute enough food to provide over 62,000 meals a day in Canada. Since 1985 we have rescued and delivered more than 177 million pounds of food, preventing over 75 million pounds of greenhouse gas equivalents from entering our atmosphere.
VISION: No Waste. No Hunger.

It is the duty of youth to bring its fresh powers to bear on Social progress. Each generation of young people should be to the world like a vast reserve force to a tired army. They should lift the world forward. That is what they are for.
