Second Harvest Heartland's Fundraising Page
Our mission is to end hunger together.
Second Harvest Heartland is one of the largest, most efficient and innovative hunger-relief organizations in the nation. Working in partnership with a network of nearly 1,000 food shelves and hunger-relief programs, Second Harvest Heartland helps the 1 in 8 people, including 1 in 5 kids, in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin who experience hunger.
We are coming to the community with an urgent call to help us fight the greatest surge in hunger since the Great Depression. Tough times related to COVID-19 have left families out of work and facing food insecurity. In late July, when unemployment and other benefits ran out, an additional 275,000 people in Minnesota, including 112,000 kids, began living with hunger.
Let’s come together to make sure none of our neighbors are forced to fight this virus hungry. Register to walk with us, create your own team, or donate to our page. Every dollar raised will be turned into much-needed meals this year and next. With your support, we will be able to:
- feed hungry people right here in Minnesota
- support our food shelf partners, who are currently experiencing unparalleled demand
- confront inequities in food access to meet the needs of communities that are most disproportionately impacted by COVID-19
- educate our neighbors so they know where to find help and feel OK asking for it
