Thank you Canada! Hero Sweepstakes a great success

by | Apr 6, 2022 | Food Waste, Hunger Relief

The 2022 Second Harvest Hero Sweepstakes, presented by Moneris, has officially come to a close, but before we go, we want to say: Thank you for making this campaign a success!

Because of your support, we were able to sell 29,900 tickets across 202 communities in Canada, amounting to $97,030 raised for Canadians in need!

These funds will help us provide 231,024 meals for people experiencing hunger from coast to coast to coast, as well as help us divert 868,714 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere.

We are beyond grateful for your participation in the Hero Sweepstakes, and so are the communities and agencies that we serve.

“The most beautiful aspect of the food distribution is seeing the community come together. Individuals that did participate in receiving food, shared that food…We could not have made this happen without the generous support from Second Harvest.”
– Chief Margaret White, Three Rivers Mi’kmaq Band Inc., NL
