Food Mania: Eide Bailly Joins the Ultimate Food Fight to End Hunger

June 25, 2013 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

Food Mania, one of Second Harvest Heartland’s premier Food & Fund Drives, began in 2008 when local accounting firm Eide Bailly approached us with an idea: create a friendly competition among local accounting and law firms to raise food and funds for Second Harvest Heartland. From this initial idea, Food Mania was born, and has grown to include employees from food companies and credit unions. Since Food Mania began, competitors have raised nearly $200,000 and collected more than 42,000 pounds of food to provide nearly 800,000 meals!

“It’s fun, with entertaining and engaging activities happening during the entire Food Mania program,” said Deb Nelson, non-profit tax manager, Eide Bailly. “But perhaps more importantly, staff and partners recognize the good work—the necessary work—being done by Second Harvest Heartland to help feed Minnesotan’s hungry neighbors.”

In the video below, Allison Gregory, senior tax associate with Eide Bailly, talks about Food Mania and why hunger relief is so important to their firm.
