Feeding Today to Grow Tomorrow

Food is fuel — it has the power to change everything. The right amount of nutritious food allows children to focus on learning, seniors to stay healthy and families to thrive.

Like you, we want to make sure everyone in our community has the food they need today and into the future. We also know how important it is to strengthen the entire hunger relief system, so all of our neighbors are well-fed tomorrow.

Eliminating hunger requires us to provide available food to people who need it, when and where they need it. While it’s a difficult problem, this community has demonstrated it’s up to the task. Last year alone, we were able to provide more than 80 million meals to our hungry neighbors, where just six years ago, less than 50 million meals were provided from the same location.

The results we’re sharing with you in our Annual Community Report point to our collective progress and demonstrate our combined abilities to eliminate regional food insecurity, once and for all.

Thank you for being the fuel of regional hunger relief efforts. Together, we are feeding today to grow tomorrow.


Rob Zeaske, Chief Executive Officer of Second Harvest Heartland
