You still have time to sign up for this year’s Food Mania challenge! During the two weeks of July 16-27, local accounting and law firms, credit unions and food companies will battle it out to see who can raise the most food, funds and volunteer hours for Second Harvest Heartland. If you’re looking for a fun charity event for your organization this summer, Food Mania is a great way to build excitement in the office and have fun with your colleagues – all for the fight against hunger.

During the school year about 375,000 children receive free or reduced-price lunches, but during the summer, only about 20% of them continue to receive benefits, putting extra strain on families across our communities. By participating in Food Mania, you help ensure all of Minnesota’s children—and their families—have access to the food they need to learn, grow and thrive. Your support can make a big impact.

Last year, Food Mania raised more than $49,000 and 4,000 pounds of food for those in our communities who are struggling with hunger. Step up to the plate and help us provide even more meals to our neighbors this summer!
