Every dollar, every food item and every donated hour matters. Join us this fall in one of our many campaigns, events, volunteer opportunities or fundraisers, and truly make a difference in the lives of our hungry neighbors.

Below are just some of the ways you can help fight hunger this fall.

Cub Cares
Cub Foods and Gopher Athletics have teamed up to launch Cub Cares, a hunger awareness program generating community support for Second Harvest Heartland and area food banks. From Sunday, October 12 to Saturday, October 25, customers will be asked to round up their purchase at the checkout register as a donation to help fight hunger in their community. Look for the Round Up sign featuring Goldy Gopher and Round Up during Cub Cares!
