Three largest program services as measured by expenses (FY2019)

Food bank : second harvest heartland is one of the nation's largest, most efficient hunger-relief organizations. We work alongside and strengthen the hunger-relief network, partnering with 360 food shelves and nearly 1,000 partner programs in every corner of our 59-county service area. Second harvest heartland works to eliminate barriers to food access with creative and innovative solutions. Last year, we community outreach: second harvest heartland is more than a food bank. Distributed more than 119 million pounds of food-over 105 million meals-to our partners in hunger-relief.


Community outreach : second harvest heartland is more than a food bank. We're leading partner in the policies and programs that work to end hunger, like snap, school meals and senior nutrition programs, and we're an innovator in the areas where food can be the solution, like FoodRx and Minnesota central kitchen. Specifically within our community outreach work, our child hunger team support the 1 in 6 children in our service area facing hunger. We do so through grants and technical assistance to child nutrition partners and promotion of programs like pandemic-EBT.


Commodity supplemental food program : the commodity supplemental food program (CSFP) is one of the foundational services provided by second harvest heartland. Through this program, we provide free food for seniors, distributing 30-35 pounds of nutritionally balanced USDA food to individuals each month. Program participants are given a box of highly nutritious food, which may include canned fruits, vegetables and juices, shelf-stable milk, American cheese, canned meat, peanut butter or dried beans, and cereal, rice or pasta. In fy20, we provided CSFP food boxes to more than 235 unique distribution sites in 41 Minnesota counties, serving approximately 87,000 seniors monthly.
