Fellowship of the Fresh Recharged

Again this summer, Second Harvest Heartland teamed up with the Minneapolis Farmers Market to collect produce from vendors and shoppers during the growing season. The total numbers are in, and we’re excited to announce we collected nearly 116,000 pounds of produce, the highest total since
the program started in 2009! In addition, we raised over $880 and recorded a total of 552 volunteer hours and 473 intern hours over the course of the market season. This success is due to the collective effort of our drivers, warehouse staff, volunteers, interns and those of you who donated at the market.

Thanks to all who contributed—you made a huge impact on the lives of so many children, working parents and seniors who are in need of a little extra help putting food on the table.
