Second Harvest

June 22, 2018

Second Harvest     https://secondharvest.ca/

Agency’s Information (who they are): Second Harvest is Canada’s largest food rescue organization that works to prevent waste by delivering healthy food to over 253 social service agency locations across Toronto. Second Harvest gathers surplus foods from farmers and large retailers that would have otherwise been thrown out and distributes the food to those in need.

Support Received (how they help us): We are a community based senior’s centre, that offers programs and services to enhance the lives of older adults. We receive weekly food donations from Second Harvest, for our seniors whom are often  socially and economically marginalized  and may not have access to affordable healthy fruits and vegetable. With the generosity of Second Harvest, our seniors are provided with a wide range of quality nutritious food  to promote a healthy lifestyle.
