Spring Chicken is one of many ways Longo’s supports Second Harvest. Since 2008, Longo’s has been generously donating all kinds of healthy surplus food to Second Harvest – over 3 million pounds to date!

Longo’s is also a partner in Second Harvest’s Food Rescue Canadian Alliance (FRCA) Task Force, a national network formed to support food redistribution efforts across the supply chain during the COVID-19 pandemic. Click to learn more about this incredible team.
