Second Harvest Heartland’s mission is to end hunger through community partnerships.
Working closely with our network of partners, volunteers and donors and people like you, our aim is to efficiently and effectively end hunger.

The problem of hunger isn’t going away without the involvement of communities, businesses and people like you. Join the Second Harvest Heartland mission, and help us end hunger.
