Second Harvest Japan aims at creation of Food Lifeline in Japan by providing food resources to those in need, such as children at orphanages, single mothers and/or disabled people at aid agencies, and other low-income households. Second Harvest Japan will create a community in which people without food security can secure enough food resources, by cooperating with food providers.
