Every Saturday, APCC partners with Second Harvest - allowing us to share healthy, wholesome meals every week with seniors, families and members of the community.
Second Harvest is the largest food rescue organization in Canada. Second Harvest works local and provincial supply chains, from farmers through to food retailers, to rescue surplus food before it ends up in the landfill and negatively impacts our environment.
Since 1985 Second Harvest has rescued more than 127 million pounds of food and prevented over 70 million pounds of greenhouse gas equivalents from entering the atmosphere. Currently, Second Harvest rescues food from over 470 donors and delivers food to 253 social service agencies in Toronto and food hubs across Ontario, providing enough food for 30,000 meals a day.
