Last week when DESA posted our President’s challenge to inspire a collaborative donation of 10,000 meals to Second Harvest, it was merely a lofty goal.
DESA would like to take this time to thank so many of you for participating to make this goal a reality. To our colleagues and friends you banned together to support this cause, quickly and with no questions asked, so thank you.
As a result we are proud to announce that we have collectively exceeded 20,000 meals donated this month!
More about Second Harvest:
“Second Harvest is Canada’s largest food rescue organization and is a global thought leader on perishable food redistribution.
We operate at the intersection of hunger relief and environmental protection, tackling food loss and waste through food redistribution, research, awareness, and education, continually innovating and collaborating to ensure a more sustainable planet.
We work with thousands of food businesses from across the supply chain utilizing logistics and technology to reduce the amount of edible food going to waste, thereby diverting unnecessary greenhouse gases from entering the environment. Our inclusive model ensures this healthy surplus food is redirected to thousands of charities and non-profits across the country, providing millions of Canadians experiencing food insecurity access to the nourishment they need.”
We would like to invite those who can to follow in our footsteps to make a difference and choose a charity each month to donate too, no donation is too little and every dollar counts! Or feel free to follow DESA’s lead and donate to the charity we choose monthly!
