Who is Second Harvest Heartland?
Second Harvest Heartland is among the nation’s largest, most effective and innovative hunger-relief organizations. Fighting hunger in the Midwest for more than three decades, we believe no one should go hungry, especially in the heartland where we produce more than enough food for everyone.
Second Harvest Heartland collects surplus food from farmers, manufacturers and retailers and delivers it to people who need it, touching the lives of half a million people last year. Working closely with more than 1,000 food shelves, meal programs and other nonprofit service organizations, we serve children, families, seniors, veterans and working adults in every community.
Last year, Second Harvest Heartland delivered enough food for nearly 97 million meals to neighbors in Minnesota and western Wisconsin facing hunger.
Who is hungry?
Hunger touches every community in the Midwest. In fact, 1 in 9 people, and 1 in 6 kids in Minnesota and western Wisconsin don’t know where their next meal will come from. In every community, in every zip code, families, kids, veterans, seniors, working parents — our neighbors — are hungry.
You can help
The Second Harvest Heartland community is fueled by the passion, time and resources our neighbors devote to hunger relief. When you join us, you help fill the plates of more than half a million people in our community.
Every $10 donated can provide 30 meals.
