Second Harvest

Roger is a Second Harvest Ambassador, lending his time and support to the organization to raise awareness of child hunger in Toronto. Established in 1985, Second Harvest is the largest food rescue charity in Canada. Second Harvest rescues fresh, surplus food that would otherwise go to waste, and delivers that food to more than 200 social service agencies in Toronto, feeding people experiencing hunger. Almost 40% of Second Harvest food recipients in Toronto are children/youth. Roger is honored to be working with such a passionate group of people who are dedicated to food rescue and he shares Second Harvest's vision: No waste. No hunger.
Save The Children

As the world's leading independent child rights organization, Save the Children's mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives. One of the poorest countries in the world, Bangladesh, has succeeded in reducing preventable maternal and child death.

However, chronic hunger continues to be a persistent problem. Malnutrition is the underlying cause in one third of global child mortality, and has lifelong consequences for children who survive. Malnourished children are more likely to become ill and perform poorly in school.

Save the Children, along with its community partners, have been saving the lives of mothers and children in Bangladesh for more than three decades. Roger Mooking spent several days meeting the mothers and children who rely on the health and nutrition services of Save the Children's MaMoni Project in Bangladesh.
