As a follow-up to Second Harvest’s 2019 report, The Avoidable Crisis of Food Waste, Second Harvest is releasing a second research report titled Canada’s Invisible Food Network. It is the first report to reveal the massive, invisible patchwork of community organizations that support an estimated 6.7 million vulnerable Canadians, or 18 percent of the country’s population. The report reveals that there are over 61,000 non-profit organizations providing food at no or low cost to people in need compared to the 15,344 grocery stores in this country.
Second Harvest supporters and members of the media are invited to attend a virtual presentation of the research on Thursday, October 7 at 9:30a.m., with Lori Nikkel, CEO of Second Harvest. To register for the livestream presentation please click HERE.
