Food & Fund Drive: summer food for kidsMake a Meaningful Difference in the Lives of Hungry Kids

Featured Food & Fund Drive: Slalom

Slalom LLC Food and Fund Drive June 2015A bit of friendly but fierce competition at the Slalom Minneapolis office led to a very successful annual drive. They far surpassed their goal by 30%, raising over $3,300! Eric Voge, Business Development Executive at Slalom, says many things contributed to the final success of the drive, including informed and motivated team captains and drive coordinator Jessica, ease of donating using the online virtual food & fund drive tool, and being able to turn every dollar donated into 3 meals. Slalom’s donations will provide an additional 12,540 meals to the communities we serve!

Thank you Slalom for supporting Second Harvest Heartland’s mission to end hunger, and for giving our neighbors who struggle with hunger hope for a better tomorrow.
