Agency Partners

The Direct Link to Hungry People


Second Harvest Heartland distributes food to nearly 1,000 food shelves, soup kitchens, shelters and other programs in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. These agency partners then distribute the food directly into the hands of working families, children and seniors throughout our 59-county service area.

Food Shelf Client KidWorking together toward a shared mission

Food shelves and other agency partners bring local communities and neighborhoods together to increase food security in urban, suburban and rural areas. These agency partners and their dedicated staffs and volunteers are the life-blood of the region's emergency food system.

Much of their local food provided to hungry neighbors comes from Second Harvest Heartland. These organizations work tirelessly with us to help make those in need are being fed.
