Why your gift matters:
Your donation to Second Harvest through the Hope of Harvest Gift Catalogue will help us to rescue more food destined for the landfill. Nearly 60 percent of food produced in Canada – amounting to 35.5 million metric tons – is lost and wasted annually. Of that, 32 percent – equaling 11.2 million metric tons of lost food – is avoidable and is edible food that could be redirected to support people in our communities.
Second Harvest rescues quality surplus food from a variety of retailers, producers and delivers it, direct and free of charge, to incredible charities that can make use of it to support those in need.
By ensuring that good food is being eaten rather than going to landfill Second Harvest is minimizing food waste and saving our environment by preventing carbon emissions from polluting the atmosphere.
Your donation will help Second Harvest become one step close to its vision of no waste, no hunger.
Can you believe this is rescued food?
