Second Harvest Hero

Every workplace, every school, every community group – everyone – can be a hero.

You can be a hero

Second Harvest Hero is a year-long fundraising campaign that lets you and your team raise funds to support Second Harvest’s food rescue operations across Canada.

Filling plates. Not landfill. What could be more heroic?

Close to 60% of all food produced in Canada is wasted every year. At the same time, one of every seven families in this country experience hunger. That just doesn’t make sense. Second Harvest has built a network that connects this healthy food to those who need it most, coast to coast to coast. We work with donors from across the food supply chain – from farms to restaurants, grocery retailers to hospitality – to rescue distribute surplus food to over 3,000 non-profit organizations.

Second Harvest needs the support of heroes like you to help us rescue this food before it gets to landfill and provide nutritious meals to those in need. For every dollar raised, Second Harvest provides two healthy meals. This year, our goal is to raise $500,000. That will provide over 1 million meals for those who need it most. There are so many ways you can be a Second Harvest Hero:
