Are you a local group or organization that is struggling to provide emergency food to your community?

With the support of the Government of Canada, Second Harvest’s has launched a new funding program to help local community organizations across the country ensure food makes its way to those who need it most.

The free donation platform connects businesses with food surpluses to charities and non-profits in their own backyards.

“Our country needs to fight through this pandemic together. We thank the Government of Canada for helping us on our mission – that no Canadian be left behind,” said Lori Nikkel, CEO of Second Harvest, in the news release. “We know well-established charities and non-profits can access resources that smaller organizations – local groups, shelters, local meal programs, and others – simply cannot. Money for these groups means food on the tables of hungry families across Canada. Without these groups, we risk whole communities and vulnerable populations falling between the gaps of our social safety net.”
