September is Hunger Action Month, and we're asking you to help us fight hunger in our community, all month long. Whether it's by advocating and raising awareness, making donations, or volunteering, you can make a difference during Hunger Action Month.

Every hour you volunteer for Second Harvest Heartland during September will be matched with a $5 donation from Bremer Bank, up to a total of $50,000!

Morning, afternoon, evening and weekend packing shifts are available for both individuals and groups at our Golden Valley facility as well as different locations throughout the Twin Cities.

You can also join us to collect produce at the Minneapolis Farmers Market, or distribute groceries at Second Harvest Heartland mobile pantries throughout the metro!

Take Action to Help End Hunger
Twice as many people are visiting food shelves in your community today than just five years ago—the face of hunger isn't always who you might expect. More and more, our friends, neighbors—even our family members are struggling to put food on the table, but you can help. This September, we are asking you to take simple actions.

Go Orange: September 5 is the national Hunger Action Day. Show your support by wearing orange on the 5th, and all month long.
