Your Gift Helps Ensure No One Has to Miss a Meal

Food & Fund Drive: FY17 HolidayAlthough hunger can affect any of us at any time of year, rarely is it felt more sharply than during the holiday season. Unfortunately, one in 10 of our neighbors will struggle with hunger as the year comes to a close.

By hosting a Holiday Food & Fund Drive, you have an opportunity to help provide hope and security this season. No matter how small or large your goal, no matter if you decide to collect donations in person or with our easy online drive, your Food & Fund drive efforts will make a difference for families right in our community. Second Harvest Heartland will provide you all of the tools you need to do so.

Featured Food & Fund Drive: Whitewave Foods

Whitewave FoodsWhitewave 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.
