August 10 – 16 is Donor Appreciation Week!

During this special week, we’re putting the spotlight on Second Harvest Heartland’s many wonderful supporters that make everything we do possible!

Watch this short video made just for you that highlights the tremendous impact of your support:

Your support MAKES A DIFFERENCE. We couldn’t do this work without you!

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the need for food assistance has skyrocketed. Currently 1 in 8 people in our area is not sure where their next meal will come from.

Because of support from donors like you, we can keep hunger at bay. Second Harvest Heartland has been able to quickly implement and sustain our emergency response in partnership with our nearly 1,000 hunger-relief partners.

This is what YOU have made possible:

  • Helped provide more than 37 million meals with nearly 1,000 food shelves and other hunger-relief partners
  • Coordinated over 100 emergency grocery pop-ups in struggling communities
  • Served nearly 600,000 meals through Minnesota Central Kitchen
  • Helped thousands of Minnesotans apply for SNAP (food stamp) benefits

We also want to give a special shout out to our amazing Capital Campaign donors who helped Second Harvest Heartland reach the huge milestone of opening our new facility in Brooklyn Park, with over three times as much space as our previous facility, allowing us to distribute more food than ever before!

Thank YOU for making this all possible – we couldn’t do any of it without your support. We’ve come so far and have accomplished so much together.

We still have a lot of work to do moving forward, as the current hunger crisis isn’t going away any time soon. We’re proud to work with you to find new ways to ensure that no one in our community is forced to worry about where their next meal will come from.

On behalf of the entire Second Harvest Heartland team,
our community partners, and the clients we serve, THANK YOU!
