WEB: Last week, a crowd gathered in Flemingdon Park, next to Playground Paradise and the community garden, to pick up some fresh fruit and vegetables. It was a farmers' market with a twist, run by the not for profit organization Second Harvest. They team up with local community groups to distribute fresh fruits and vegetables that have been collected at the Ontario Food Terminal and rescued from the landfill to people who otherwise wouldn't have easy access to these healthy foods. Our food columnist Sarah Elton spoke with Tonia Krauser from Second Harvest as well as one of the market's clients about the difference this project is making.
