Host a Food & Fund Drive
Your Gift Helps Ensure No One Has to Miss a Meal
For most kids and teens, the weekends and summer months are a time for fun and freedom, but for thousands of young people in Minnesota, it means long days and empty stomachs. In fact, more than 40 percent of Minnesota K-12 students rely on free or reduced-price meals during the school year, leaving gaps in their meals when they aren’t in school for summer break.
By hosting a Food & Fund Drive this summer, you have an opportunity to help provide regular access to a balance of healthy, nutritious food—fuel for a child’s growth and ability to learn. No matter how small or large your goal, no matter if you collect funds to help distribute 3 meals for every dollar or choose to donate one of our most-needed items, your efforts in your Food & Fund Drive 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: Punch Pizza
Punch Neapolitan Pizza has been supporting Second Harvest Heartland through its annual food & fund drive since 2009. During this year’s drive, customers had the option of donating non-perishable food items for a discount on their pizza, or donating $2 for a $2 coupon to use at a later date. Through employee and customer support, 2,490 pounds and $6,875 was raised allowing us to distribute 22.700 meals! On behalf of the hungry neighbors in our community, thank you Punch Pizza for making a difference!
