RedBit is thrilled to join forces with Second Harvest as a Silver Sponsor for The Rescue Party as well as a whole host of other partners and continuing to help on the technology side.
Building on the 30-year legacy of Toronto Taste, we at RedBit are thrilled to participate in the annual fundraiser The Rescue Party, Toronto's most exciting culinary and concert experience this summer on June 4, 2023. If you are a foodie, this is an event you will want to attend.
Why a Big Event?
Food insecurity is on the rise in Canada and the work the entire Second Harvest team does to combat this is necessary and required at a national level. In Canada $49 billion, yes billion, worth of good edible food is wasted yearly. At the same time, food insecurity is on the rise and this does not make logical sense.
We have been working with Second Harvest for the past 5 years and continue to help fight food insecurity in Canada through technology by helping to build and manage the Second Harvest Food Rescue App. An app that has helped provide 150,000 meals per day, redistributed 53.3 million pounds of food in 2022.
Lori Nikkel, CEO of Second Harvest had this to say
“It’s with the support of partners like RedBit Development that we’re able to rescue and redistribute enough nutritious food to support 4.3 million people every year. Food insecurity and climate change are urgent pressures in Canada that we can’t address alone. The $25,000 from RedBit Development and the ongoing support with the technology will have an immediate impact across the country!”
Here is a list of the impact Second Harvest has had to people across Canada in 2022.
