We’re excited to announce that one of our partners, Second Harvest will be participating in TWO Hero Days this year. Keep an eye out for their green Heroes taking over the city on Thursday, February 9 and Thursday, February 23, 2017.
Watch for their green on the CN Tower and Nathan Philip Square’s TORONTO sign, and for Second Harvest Heroes in bright green masks and capes, on the TTC and PATH. Last year, $25,000 was raised from just ONE Hero Day! We’re excited to see what TWO days can bring!
How YOU Can Help
Chefs Plate donates all excess food every week in our effort to reduce food waste. However, it’s easy for anyone to make a difference. Whether it’s dropping spare change into the Second Harvest collection cans located at 20+ TTC stations and PATH locations or get your office involved and join 100+ companies and schools running fundraisers to support food rescue and prevention of food waste. Check out the Second Harvest fundraising toolkit for more information.
Second Harvest also has raffle tickets available where you can enter for a chance to win one of 15 exciting prizes – including a dream getaway. Tickets are available for sale at 1 for $10, 3 for $25 or 10 for $80.
For every $5 raised, food for 10 healthy meals is provided to Torontonians in need. Funds raised through the Hero campaign enable Second Harvest to rescue excess food that would otherwise go to waste, and deliver that good food to people in need across our city.
