Sponsorships and Cause Marketing Opportunities

Cause marketing

Cause Marketing and Sponsorship opportunities provide a valuable way to align your company with Second Harvest Heartland, a well-known and trusted brand in our community. Gain exposure and show your commitment to ending hunger while you support our organization with needed funds to end hunger.

Cause marketing campaigns

Whether through donating a portion of product sales, asking for customer donations or through other methods, your organization can help generate financial contributions to Second Harvest Heartland, increase awareness of the issue of hunger and show how your company is helping to make a difference.


Support hunger relief and engage your employees or customers through a variety of sponsorship opportunities that draw active, community-minded participants who are energized by our cause:

  • Social Events

Featured partner: Kemps/Great American Milk Drive

Great American Milk DriveKemps in partnership with Cub hosted a Great American Milk Drive campaign last summer encouraging customers to round up their purchase to help provide more milk to children and families through Second Harvest Heartland. The campaign was a great success and Kemps will be providing more than 36,000 gallons of milk – donated based on the generosity of Cub customers – to local hunger relief agency partners and their clients.

Milk is one of the most requested items by food bank clients year-round, and especially during the summer when kids are missing out on nutritious meals provided through school breakfast and lunch programs. Thanks to Kemps and Cub for helping to provide more milk to our hungry neighbors this summer!
