Golden Valley Volunteering Moved to Brooklyn Park

You can now volunteer at our Brooklyn Park location! Second Harvest Heartland will no longer host volunteer options at our Golden Valley location. Instead you can volunteer while we’re “under construction” at our new space.

Hope to see you soon! (And if you prefer the east metro, our Maplewood location is happy to have you!)

We bought the new building because we need more and better space to handle higher quantities and better quality food. More than half of the food we distribute is fresh, and this means careful handling, quick turnaround, and the right temperatures for it. Our new space will be able to offer all of that and more! Come see the “bare bones” space and help us move into the future of getting more healthy food into more people’s homes, where, when, and how they need it. You’re the engine that makes this all possible-- thank you!

7101 Winnetka Avenue N.

Volunteer Shift Times & Capacity: Shift times and capacity will remain the same at Brooklyn Park as they were at Golden Valley. Volunteer shifts are available Tuesday through Saturday. The capacity for shifts varies from 50-100 volunteers depending on the time of day & week. We will continue to work with volunteer groups to accommodate needs as best we can. Please note that meeting room space is not available while we are under renovation. Once full renovation of the building is complete in early 2020, the new Brooklyn Park facility will be able to accommodate up to 200 volunteers per shift, doubling our capacity.
