We're privileged to put our talents and our hearts to work on solving the serious issue of hunger. We make it easy and fun for you to do the same.
Donate • Volunteer • Participate • Advocate
Make a financial contribution – Donating money is the most efficient way to bring food to your hungry neighbors. We make it easy to make a monthly or one-time gift, include Second Harvest Heartland in your will, or even make a gift to celebrate a special event.
Volunteer – Donate your time and talents by sorting and repacking food, working with clients or providing other support. We offer convenient, fun volunteer opportunities for groups, individuals and families.
Participate – It’s easy to participate in hunger relief by supporting Second Harvest Heartland events, campaigns, Food & Fund Drives and promotions. No matter what your interests are, you will find compelling ways to help
Advocate – We cannot meet the hunger need in our region through food distributions alone. That’s why we advocate for public programs and policies that nourish our communities and work to end hunger. And you can join us!
Ways to donate food – We welcome donations of food from the food industry, from groups or individuals. Our 90,000 square feet of warehouse space accommodates canned and packaged foods, fresh produce, frozen goods, dairy products and more.

Get involved: Going above and beyond
Ask someone why they volunteer, and most people respond: “to help others.” We've counted more than 3,000 volunteer hours from Jerri since 2012. But Jerri has been volunteering since long before we even started keeping track!
