Do You Have What it Takes to Be a Hero?

Our 21st Second Harvest Hero campaign is well underway! Second Harvest Hero is a year-round fundraising campaign that aims to raise funds and awareness in support of Second Harvest’s food rescue mission. This campaign has multiple events and activities that are easy to implement and are completely customizable to fit the fundraising needs of any company or school.

For the very first time, we are recruiting Heroes from all across Canada! No matter which coast or province you call home, whether your team is at the office or working from home, our Hero staff can help you kick off your most heroic fundraiser yet. We have made it easier than ever before to fundraise online with new fundraising team pages, new ways to give online, and most importantly, our first Second Harvest Hero Sweepstakes, presented by Moneris.

Entries for the Hero Sweepstakes are available for purchase by residents of all Canadian provinces (excluding Quebec) and our Early Bird deadline is fast approaching on February 18, 2021. The grand draw for our remaining 15 amazing prizes will take place on April 9, 2021. Our staff can set your company or school up with a personalized link to make the Sweepstakes a popular fundraiser for your team.

This year, our campaign goal is to raise $375,000, enough to provide over 750,000 meals for families and agencies in need all across Canada.

Are you willing to rise to the challenge and be a Second Harvest Hero yourself?
