Second Harvest

Second Harvest is Canada’s largest food rescue organization and expert in perishable food recovery. We believe surplus, unsold food from across the supply chain should be redirected to social service organizations and schools that feed communities.

Our services help to nourish people through school programs, seniors’ centres, shelters, community meal programs, food banks, and regional food hubs while at the same time keeping good food out of landfills to protect our atmosphere from unnecessary GHG emissions that are contributing to climate change.

We lead the avoidable food waste conversation and promote reduction and recovery wherever possible to benefit all of us– environmentally, economically and socially.

Established in 1985, Second Harvest has operations in Ontario and BC, with national expansion on the horizon.
