Who Are Second Harvest Food Rescue And Why Are They Important:

Second Harvest Food Rescue is not just an organization; it's a beacon of hope for millions, as 20% of Canada’s current population is facing food insecurity. During the last fiscal year, they were able to help 4.8 million Canadians receive food which is 12% of the population. 

As Canada's largest food rescue organization, Second Harvest operates at the intersection of hunger relief and environmental protection. Their mission is twofold: to alleviate hunger by redistributing surplus food to those in need and to mitigate the environmental impact of food loss and waste.

Second Harvest is pivotal in addressing this pressing issue in a country where millions struggle to put food on the table. Their innovative approach rescues surplus food from various sources across the food supply chain – including farmers, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers – that would otherwise go to waste. This surplus food is then redirected to thousands of charities and nonprofits, providing nutritious meals to individuals and families facing hunger.

However, Second Harvest's impact extends beyond hunger relief. By rescuing and redistributing surplus food, they also contribute to environmental sustainability. Food waste is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, and by diverting edible food from landfills, Second Harvest helps reduce these emissions, thereby contributing to a healthier planet for future generations.

Second Harvest's work is not only important on a national scale but also on a global level. As a thought leader in perishable food redistribution, Second Harvest shares its expertise and best practices with organizations around the world, driving progress toward a more sustainable and equitable future.
