Second Harvest’s food rescue program is designed to offer a seamless pathway for businesses, non-profits and others to reduce unsold surplus food, decreasing overhead costs and lessening their environmental footprint.
For many organizations, having unsold, edible food is a burdening issue – one they do not have appropriate capabilities to deal with. For many non-profits, there is a need for increased access to food donations to support their operations and help feed those in need.
Second Harvest’s food rescue program connects these two groups, setting up networks between food businesses with charities and non-profits to create mutually beneficial and sustainable uses for surplus food.
Our goal is to connect food donors to non-profits.
Our goal is to prevent unnecessary loss of edible food and help businesses, by establishing processes to redistribute and use surplus food. By collaborating with a diverse group of partners and setting up networks between food donors and non-profits, our food rescue programs take edible, delicious food and ensure it doesn’t end up in landfill.
