Food Waste and Food Rescue

Second Harvest is Canada’s largest food rescue charity with a dual mission of environmental protection and hunger relief. Wasted food isn't just a social or humanitarian concern—it's an environmental one too! Thankfully, there are plenty of actions we can take right at home to make a significant difference.

Did you know that nearly 60% of the food produced in Canada is lost and wasted annually? Of that, 32% of lost food – is avoidable and is edible food that could be redirected to support people in our communities.

The financial value of this rescuable food is a staggering $49.46 billion.

We put together a great information guide on best before dates, click below to find out more. It's a great first step to reducing food waste at home!
