Six hundred thousand pounds of sweet corn made their way to hungry families last summer, thanks to the partnership of local food relief groups and corporations in a new food rescue pilot project.

Cargill, General Mills, Hunger-Free Minnesota, SUPERVALU and Seneca Foods Corporation came together in partnership with Second Harvest Heartland to provide transportation, equipment, warehouse space and financial support to rescue corn that would have otherwise gone to waste and deliver to those in need. This first-of-its-kind agricultural surplus initiative is planned to be repeated this year.
