At the Fall Food Gathering 2019 we advanced our Second Harvest Grey Bruce program with a new partnership with FoodRescue.ca, a free online platform that connects food donors with non-profit community food organizations. 58% of food produced in Canada is lost or wasted annually. Second Harvest heard from businesses that they’re willing to donate their surplus produce; They just needed a system to make it easy and safe to connect with social service programs in their own communities. OSHaRE in Owen Sound provides hot meals for 100 people/day (M-F) and packed lunches on the weekend. The involvement of FoodRescue.ca means a steady supply of fresh produce from Zehrs to OSHaRE. This opens up opportunities for OSHaRE to offer a fresh food market and a food distribution hub with other emergency food programs in Grey County and Bruce County. FoodRescue.ca positively impacts our environment and ensures good food gets to people who can use it.
