Current Corporate and Foundation Partners
We count on organizations of all sizes and in all industries to make an impact on hunger relief. The strong support we receive – in the form of financial, time and food donations – helps us work more effectively to achieve our mission to end hunger.
Our annual Hunger Hero awards honor the mission-sharing work of organizational partners in six different categories.
In the community
Thanks to Allianz and their employee giving campaign “Spirit of Giving”, Second Harvest Heartland received more than $76,000 to support our Retail Food Rescue program helping us in part to secure more than 34 million pounds of food last year from local grocery retailers. They celebrate the year with their annual Spirit of Giving stuff the truck event to announce their donations to Second Harvest Heartland as well as other local charities receiving toys, books, food and clothing. Allianz is one of our top workplace giving corporate partners and we are so grateful for their generous support!
The generous grants provided by philanthropic organizations make a great difference in the lives of those who don't always know where their next meal is coming from.
Featured partner: Accelare
Second Harvest Heartland’s team recently partnered with Accelare to apply their Strategy to Execution (S2E) methods and tools (WorkFit) in a ten week effort to deliver a transformational business model that supports not only our current client base, but an expansion of our products and services to reach a new population through our ‘Hunger and Health’ initiative. This groundbreaking project is designed to increase food access for low-income health care consumers as a means to simultaneously reduce hunger and improve health outcomes.
The Accelare team – with participation from Microsoft – dedicated hundreds of hours of time, along with expert guidance and resources. This pro bono work allows us to forge new and pioneering partnerships within the Healthcare industry and to launch innovative pilots that will help us to begin to close the gaps between Hunger and Health by reaching neighbors in need.
