Second Harvest is the largest food rescue charity in Canada and has been making a huge difference in my city since 1985.
Second Harvest rescues excess, fresh food that would otherwise go to waste, and delivers that food to more than 220 social service agencies in Toronto, feeding people experiencing hunger. Since 1985 Second Harvest has rescued and delivered over 100 million pounds of good food, thus preventing 50 million pounds of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere, and we think that’s pretty amazing, so when heard about their upcoming culinary event taking place we just had to share.
On Sunday, June 12, Canada’s largest food rescue charity, is calling all food lovers and connoisseurs to Toronto Taste, Toronto’s legendary culinary fundraiser presented by The Daniels Corporation. Take a bite out of hunger, alongside the city’s top chefs and beverage purveyors in support of food rescue.
The event will feature sumptuous dishes and drinks from over 90 of the most sought-after restaurants and beverage purveyors. Guests will enjoy breathtaking lakeside views, the opportunity to uncover premium wines in the fine wine auction, the chance to win a trip to India in the raffle draw and more.
New this year, Second Harvest will offer three individuals the opportunity to become sous chef during the Chef Challenge for one of the three competing Chefs Kaya Ogruce, Darby Piquette and Ivana Raca. Also, one top fundraiser will earn a coveted spot at the all-star judge’s panel alongside Cynthia Beretta, Chef Nick Liu, Chef Matt DeMille and Chef Juriaan Snellen.
