Nourishing Lives

Nourishing Lives

No one should go hungry. With your help, we are working to end hunger. In our efforts to provide more food to our hungry neighbors, we are working with our partners in the community and beyond to find new ways to reach people – at school, in their neighborhoods, when they visit the doctor and more.

We also know that everyone experiences hunger differently. A senior in rural Minnesota has different barriers than a child who gets a school lunch but doesn’t know where lunch will come from on the weekends.







Communities we serve

Second Harvest Heartland serves 59 counties in Minnesota and western Wisconsin.


How We’re Doing It:

As we continue to reach more people through new programs and partnerships, the demands on Second Harvest Heartland continue to grow. Last year, we distributed more than 80 million meals from the same location where fewer than 50 million meals were provided just six years ago.

At the heart of our work are two warehouses and fleet of trucks. Join us on a virtual tour to see our warehouse in action.
