Second Harvest, Canada’s largest food rescue organization, has been rescuing usable surplus food since 1985. To date, more than 140 million pounds of food has been recovered. It was Ontario’s ever-growing need to provide fresh, healthy food to hungry families that inspired Second Harvest’s innovative online platform, FoodRescue.ca.
Creating a website and having a digital presence is essential to today’s business. Though building a site is an added task (and expense) to your already busy day, it truly is easier and more affordable than ever to share your menu with the world and let us know where to find you.
