Since 1985 Second Harvest has been rescuing fresh, healthy surplus food, and delivering that food to hungry people in need across Toronto.

Grocery stores, restaurants, hotels, food manufacturers and distributors donate all the food. Vulnerable children, adults and seniors in need receive the food though Second Harvest’s network of 200 community agencies. Every day we rescue and deliver enough food to provide 20,000 meals. Since we started, Second Harvest has rescued and delivered more than 90 million pounds of good food.
