Welcome to Grow With Us — Our online experience

Welcome! Thank you for joining us for our Grow With Us online experience, and helping to keep our food and community safe. We hope you enjoy each of the stops below. Second Harvest Heartland provides food to a network of nearly 1,000 food shelves and meal programs across Minnesota and western Wisconsin, making us the backbone of hunger relief in our area. This COVID-19 crisis only emphasizes that Minnesota depends on us. As many food shelves are requesting double and triple their usual amounts of food and we respond with emergency supplies, our need for greater capacity is being starkly felt. During this online experience, you’ll hear from our CEO and an agency partner on the work you make possible, get an insider’s tour of our new facility, and learn how you can help provide 125 million meals by 2025.

STOP #1: Welcome from Allison O'Toole

STOP #2: Guided Tour of our new Brooklyn Park facility

STOP #3: Hear from agency partner, Ekta Prakash, Executive Director of CAPI Immigrant Opportunity Center

STOP #5: We can’t do this without you!

As you now know, hunger continues to be a persistent and pervasive problem in our community. That’s why we’re asking you to increase your commitment and help us leverage our refurbished hunger-relief center, and the impact of our community partners—including food shelves, meal programs, volunteers, donors, and more. Help us create a hunger-free heartland.
