The Direct Link to Hungry People
Second Harvest Heartland partners with nearly 1,000 food shelves, soup kitchens, shelters and other programs in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. These agency partners distribute food directly to their communities and into the hands of working families, children and seniors throughout a shared hunger relief network.
Working 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 within a 59-county service area. Agency partners and their dedicated staffs and volunteers are the life-blood of the hunger relief network. Second Harvest could not accomplish its mission to end hunger without their partnership, support and hard work.
Interested in becoming an agency partner?
At Second Harvest Heartland, we are feeling the effects of a national truck driver shortage that has impacted all industries across Minnesota. While we are exploring a number of options to retain our current drivers, attract new ones and create alternate ways to deliver food, the shortage has started to affect our ability to deliver food. We are doing everything possible to minimize the impact on current partners, but have had to make a few changes.
We have temporarily stopped engagement in new partnerships and expansion of existing partnerships through December 2018. At that time we will re-assess our capacity for growth. Between now and the end of the year we encourage you to connect and collaborate with an existing hunger relief program in your community.
Please check back in with us in 2019.
