Sometimes there isn’t enough time in the day to accomplish all the work and volunteering that you might want to. Thanks to local businesses, you’re now able to help Second Harvest Heartland end hunger just by shopping.

Five local businesses – Local Crate, Summit Brewing Company, Lunds & Byerlys, Galactic Pizza and Hillary’s – are partnering with Second Harvest Heartland to provide shoppers with the opportunity to give back when they make a purchase.

Whenever you purchase a single meal for yourself from Local Crate, you’re also donating three to neighbors in need. When you tour Summit Brewing Company, your ticket into the tour is a donation of nonperishable food items.

By reusing Lunds & Byerlys reusable grocery bags, you’re lessening your carbon footprint and donating five cents to Second Harvest Heartland. By ordering the “Second Harvest Heartland” pizza at Galactic Pizza, you’re donating $1 to its namesake.

And when you purchase a hunger relief basket from Hillary’s, 10 percent of the proceeds go straight to Second Harvest Heartland to help with our hunger relief projects.
