One in 11 people in Minnesota are hungry. September is Hunger Action Month, a nationwide campaign to mobilize the public to take action against hunger. As a member of Feeding America's nationwide network of food banks, we're asking you to support Second Harvest Heartland and those we serve by taking action to raise awareness about the problem of hunger in our service area.

Ways to Take Action



Plates for Good, a celebration of dining out for a cause, on Thursday, September 12, our community's premier eateries will donate a minimum of 20% of sales to end hunger. Take a long lunch. Stay for dinner. Order dessert.

Go orange for hunger relief!

Why go orange? Going orange provides an opportunity for people across the country to unify and show their support of hunger relief and raise awareness of hunger and the rising need in our communities.

  • Wear the color orange on September 12, Hunger Action Day, and all month long. Share a pic of you wearing orange on social media with @2harvest and use the hashtag #HungerActionMonth.

Host a Food & Fund Drive

Whether you choose to host a virtual drive or want to go the more traditional route, your drive will make a meaningful difference during Hunger Action Month.
