A little about Second Harvest…
“Second Harvest rescued food is rescuing lives. It enables the filling of empty cupboards and refrigerators.”
In Canada, far too much healthy food goes to landfill when it’s not sold. Since 1985, Second Harvest has been rescuing millions of pounds of fresh, healthy food from farms, retail and foodservice and redistributing it to thousands of non-profit organizations. Second Harvest puts millions of dollars of food value back into communities and stops the harmful environmental impact of food needlessly going to landfill.
In Calgary, Second Harvest supports 90+ charitable agencies, including Calgary Family Peer Connections who have been responsible for rescuing the most food in AB to date.
