Second Harvest Heartland Food Bank

A nonprofit organization

$717,893 raised by 4,177 donors

Our mission at Second Harvest Heartland is to end hunger together. As a leading hunger-relief organization, our food bank provides 94% of the food distributed by more than 1,000 food shelves and partner programs in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. We also help families enroll in food assistance and provide prepared meals for people who need more than groceries. 

Last year, Second Harvest Heartland distributed more than 113 million meals across our region and we’re on track to deliver even more this year. 

We can’t slow down now as inflation, changes to emergency benefits, and unstable gas and grocery prices are making it hard for families to keep their fridges and cupboards stocked.  

We need your help to continue our hunger-fighting work. Your gift today will help ensure every plate is full this holiday season and in the coming winter months.

Special thanks to our Give to the Max Day sponsors Post Consumer Brands, ADM, Gopher Medical, The Mosaic Company, Ceramic Tileworks, Dairy Queen and generous individual donors for providing matching funds to provide even more much-needed meals. 

"We’d probably be going without Thanksgiving food this year without the food distribution. It’s a relief that my daughter and I can have some fun cooking and just be together."

"This food is going to help a lot. We’ll have this for the holiday, and then have leftovers for a while too."
