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.
In 2019, Weston Frontlines Centre, a partner of Second Harvest named their annual culinary award on behalf of Chef Mooking. The program provides healthy meals and training programs for Toronto youth facing barriers to employment.
