Village of Hope Niagara are pleased to announce our new partnership with Second Harvest Canada Food Rescue. With the introduction of their Second Harvest Food Rescue App https://secondharvest.ca/foodrescue/app/ local food producers, restaurants, or providers that have current over supply of food will be able to quickly and conveniently contact Village of Hope Niagara. Collected foods then will be made immediately available through our food bank to our neighbours in need.
