Second Harvest Food Drive at Walkathon

Second Harvest Nagoya
NPO Second Harvest Nagoya will have a booth set up at the 2015 Chubu Walkathon and welcome donations of non-perishable food items. That said, don't feel you have to run out and buy a cart-load of food. Even if you have unopened, non-perishable foods items kicking around the pantry that seemed like a good idea at the time but now you figure you probably won't consume, bring 'em along!

Second Harvest will be collecting:

  • Rice and Pasta
  • Freeze Dried Foods
  • Processed Foods (Canned Goods, etc...)
  • Instant Foods, Foods in Ready-Made Packs
  • Gift Sets (Gifts and Souvenirs such as Oseibo, Ochugen, etc...)
  • Cooking Supplies (Miso, soy sauce, dashi, etc...)
  • Drinks (Coffee, Tea, Juice etc...)
Important points to check before bring your donation!!

  • Product has an expiration date that is clearly labeled.
    (Your donation must have at least 1 month remaining before the expiration date)
  • Products from overseas sometimes use manufacturing codes for expiration dates. Unfortunately, we cannot accept these donations.
  • Product is unopened and the packaging is in good condition.
  • No glass containers and perishable food.
