Today we set up shop with half a dozen other like-minded ethical brands in Toronto to raise money for an amazing cause that’s close to our hearts. A big shout out to our pals at Lucid Communications for organizing this Sample Sale For A Cause. Today, we are not focused on profit, but on raising as much money as possible for Second Harvest, an incredible local grassroots charity. Along with the other brands participating in this event, we’ll be donating twenty percent of today’s sales directly to Second Harvest.
For those who aren’t yet familiar with Second Harvest, they’re a Toronto-based charity, and are in fact the largest food rescue organization in Canada. As a global thought leader on food recovery, their goal is to drastically reduce the amount of food wasted while ensuring people have access to good, healthy food they need for success. Second Harvest works across the supply chain from farmer to retail to capture surplus food before it ends up in the landfill and negatively impacts our environment.
Since 1985 they have rescued and delivered more than 127 million pounds of food and prevented over 70 million pounds of greenhouse gas equivalents from entering our atmosphere. Currently, they rescue food from over 470 donors and deliver that food to 253 social service agencies in Toronto and food hubs across Ontario, providing enough food for 30,000 meals a day. It costs Second Harvest under 40 cents to provide 1 meal to someone in need.
Join us today at 1179 King Street West, Suite 018 from 12-8pm to get some incredible deals while shopping for a great cause.
