Second Harvest

  • June 14, 2021

Second Harvest is Canada’s largest food rescue organization and expert in perishable food recovery. We rescue surplus, unsold food from across the supply chain and redistribute it to not-for-profits across the country to feed communities.

Volunteers are essential to Second Harvest and the work that we do.

Every year, thousands of volunteers contribute hours of their time to sort food, assist in the office, ride on our trucks, and provide support at fundraising events and food collections across the city. We encourage you to get the most out of your volunteer experience by sharing your time, talent and ideas with us. You can choose from volunteer opportunities in a variety of areas that can match your skills, interests and availability.

Join one of the most exciting and rewarding volunteer programs in Toronto and soon across Canada! Please note: Due to the high volume of applicants, we are no longer accepting volunteers seeking court appointed hours.
