A Message from our CEO
At Second Harvest Heartland, we believe everyone deserves access to healthy food – no matter their income. We often hear about barriers to accessing fresh food, specifically produce, and our goal is to increase the volume distributed and increase the access in order to break down those barriers for our hungry neighbors.
More than 28 percent of all of the food we distributed in 2015 was produce. As our fastest-growing food stream, and one source of healthy food, there are always opportunities to do more.
In our recent newsletter, we shared stories about what we’re doing to distribute more fresh produce through one of our programs - Share Fresh Minnesota. We also shared more about why our clients say new points of access are important to them.
This is just a portion of our work to provide more wholesome food options and reach more neighbors in need. As harvest season approaches and we begin to see an abundance of fresh food opportunities, I invite you to join us in our work.
Thank you for all that you already do.
Rob Zeaske, CEO
