Host a Food & Fund Drive
Your Gift Helps Ensure No One Has to Miss a Meal
Throughout the year, many Minnesota children face food insecurity. In fact, one in six children lives with daily hunger. More than 38 percent of K-12 students in Minnesota rely on free or reduced-price meals during the school year, leaving these children in need of replacements over the summer break.
By hosting a Summer Food and Fund Drive, you are helping to ensure that more children in Minnesota receive the nutritious food they need to grow and succeed. Whether it’s a regular or virtual drive, we’ll provide you with all the tools you need.

Featured Food & Fund Drive: Whitewave Foods
Whitewave Foods (headquartered in Colo.) strives to make an impact in each of the communities of which our offices are located every May. Whitewave Foods has been working with Feeding America for years. The Whitewave office in Minnesota may have only six people total, but you won’t know that from the funds raised this year with Second Harvest Heartland. The online Virtual Drive was SO easy for us to set up and helped expand our reach to more friends, family, and coworkers than previous years. In May 2016, we raised $2,950 or 8,850 meals through our Fund Drive page, which was nearly 2x the amount of funds we did in 2015.
We are so thankful to all that contributed to this drive to make an such an impact to our community through Second Harvest.
