Second Harvest

Second Harvest is Canada’s largest food rescue charity with a dual mission of environmental protection and hunger relief. We redistribute nutritious, unsold food from across Canada to charities, non-profits and Indigenous communities from coast to coast to coast. Our free, essential service helps nourish people through school programs, seniors’ centres, shelters, food banks, and regional food hubs. Since 1985, Second Harvest has rescued over 177 million pounds of healthy food, keeping it out of landfills and preventing 267 million pounds of greenhouse gases from entering our atmosphere. Our vision: No Waste. No Hunger.


Canada’s largest food rescue organization and expert in food recovery. Established in 1985, Second Harvest has operations in Ontario and BC, with national expansion on the horizon. @SecondHarvestCA
