“150 years of helping the world thrive” is Cargill’s tagline for their 150th anniversary. To celebrate, Second Harvest Heartland brought its founder, W.W. Cargill, along for a day to see what hunger relief looks like for Minnesota’s largest food bank.

The day started with our CEO – Rob Zeaske, at Second Harvest Heartland’s Maplewood headquarters.

For his last stop, W.W. Cargill visited Valley Outreach in Stillwater, one of more than 1,000 food shelves, pantries and other partner programs that Second Harvest Heartland supports across Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Our agency partners were responsible for distributing more than 74 million meals directly into the hands of families, children and seniors throughout our 59-county service area.
