The Second Harvest fundraising campaign runs year-round, from September 1 to August 31, so you can hold your workplace campaign whenever works best for your team.
Except for the Truck Pull Challenge, where teams must raise a minimum of $2,500 to participate, there is no fundraising minimum to take part in any other facet of the campaign.
You can run your campaign for as long as you like! Whether it’s a one-day event, or a campaign that is active for a week, month, or a year!
None at all! There is no fee to register your campaign and all fundraising materials are free to order and have delivered to your home or workplace.

The funds you raise directly support our food rescue operations. Whether it's supporting maintenance for our food rescue fleet, maintaining the costs associated with our food rescue and donation web platform, or costs associated with our warehouse, your funds allow us to maintain and eventually expand all aspects of our food rescue operations, allowing us to increase our capacity for rescuing more fresh, healthy food. This, in turn, will allow for more food to be redistributed to our social service agency partners and allow for more meals to be provided to those in need. Find more information about the impact of your donations and fundraising.
All online donations of at least $20 are eligible for a tax receipt, which will be automatically generated and sent to your email. The purchase of entries for the Sweepstakes are not eligible for a tax receipt.
