2015 Foodortunity Winners

Congratulations to our winners!

CIT’s Foodortunity contest is designed to increase awareness of local community organizations that focus on providing food and meals to those in need. Over the course of the six-week voting period, individuals could choose from among 14 charities to determine which one should receive the $10,000 grand prize, while the runner-up would receive $5,000 and third place would receive $2,500. 

First Place 
Second Harvest Food Rescue
Canada’s largest food rescue charity, Second Harvest rescues excess, fresh food that would otherwise go to waste, and delivers it to over 200 social service agencies in Toronto, feeding people experiencing hunger. Our vision: No Waste. No Hunger. 

First Runner-up 
Food for Life
Seven days a week, we collect surplus perishable food from grocery stores, retail & wholesale food suppliers. Daily food deliveries go to 100 community programs in low-income neighbourhoods in Oakville, Burlington, Milton, Acton and Georgetown. 

Second Runner-up 
God’s Pit Crew 
God's Pit Crew is comprised of hundreds of volunteers who support the call to help people in need. We are a Crisis Response Team when disaster strikes as well as a distribution center of donated food and household goods to assist our community.
