Second Harvest and Food US Spotlight

Second Harvest and Food US Spotlight

To be an all-natural beauty brand, we think it’s important to practice sustainability and help uplift those in need. That’s why in addition to being paraben-free, fragrance-free, non-GMO, cruelty-free, and gluten-free, Fièra Cosmetics has partnered with the nonprofits Second Harvest Canada and Food Rescue US. 

With every Fièra Cosmetics purchase made, a meal is donated to these organizations. In this article, you’ll learn a bit more about our partners and why they are so important. 

Second Harvest Canada Food Rescue

Second Harvest is committed to food justice and food security. Their mission statement, “Grow an efficient food recovery network to fuel people and reduce the environmental impacts of avoidable food waste,” encompasses their priority of enriching our environment and our community by giving food a second life. 

What does this mean? It means giving businesses the opportunity to donate their unused or unsold supplies to those in need. Rather than throwing away a surplus of food every day, those meals can go to people experiencing food insecurity. 

Based in Canada, Second Harvest has partners scattered throughout North America. During Covid times alone, Second Harvest was able to reach incredible heights, as listed below:

  • 9.8 million pounds of food rescued
  • 9.8 million meals delivered
  • $30.9 million worth of food rescued

In addition to their extensive list of programs, they also host events to help bring people together for the sake of the mission. On the Second Harvest website, you can also find information regarding training and educational workshops, as well as information about the crisis of food waste that our world is facing. 

Food Rescue US

Food Rescue US works by the motto “Be the rescue.” For Food Rescue US, diminishing hunger and food waste are the two main priorities of the nonprofit. Since its inception, Food Rescue US has provided:

  • 68 million meals
  • 89 million pounds of food saved
  • 31 sites across the United States

There is a range of donors that Food Rescue US accepts food from, including but not limited to grocery stores, restaurants, schools, hospitals, hotels, and sports arenas. With the help of a lot of incredible volunteers, Food Rescue US acts as a liaison between food suppliers and the food insecure, getting the food to those in need.

Fièra, Second Harvest, & Food Rescue US

With every customer purchase, Fièra is able to contribute to these fantastic companies. So far, Fièra has donated 942,814 meals to those experiencing food insecurity. In the month of February alone, Fièra donated nearly 120,000 meals. With progress like that, Fièra aims to help close the food security gap, and help stop food waste in North America, and beyond.
