Toronto – Second Harvest, Canada’s largest food rescue organization, is launching two initiatives that are good for the planet and the community.

The first, says the organization, is called For The Love of Food Challenge, which is a one-month program that will challenge Toronto consumers to reduce their food waste by 50 per cent.

The initiative will kick off in Toronto on April 18, 2018 at The Gladstone Hotel.

Second Harvest says the Ontario Trillium Foundation is supporting For The Love of Food Challenge, which hopes to inspire Torontonians to “become food rescue champions in their home and community.”

The second initiative is the Harvest Kitchens program, and for this Second Harvest has just partnered with the Hospitality Workers Training Centre (HWTC) and MLSE LaunchPad.

This initiative supports unemployed and underemployed youth and adults with culinary skills training that helps prepare them for work in the hospitality industry, says Second Harvest.

Harvest Kitchens will launch with Chef Roger Mooking on April 17, 2018 at MLSE LaunchPad in Toronto.
