Humbled by hunger, overcome by gratitude
You would never guess by looking at him in his buttoned-down shirt and jeans that Tim used to sleep under a park bench. You’d never guess because Tim is a very different man today than he was just eight years ago.
Because of you…
We can see a future when everyone is fed. You’ve powered our growth so all our kids can be fed and grow. You stood behind our innovative food prescriptions so chronic conditions don’t hold us back. You’ve filled more tables by helping us rescue good food from retailers that would otherwise be wasted.

We’re going to need a bigger table

Growing so they can grow
Fighting child hunger
Pancakes for dinner is a tradition in Jessica’s family. The small dignity of choosing what to have for dinner, or to have dinner at all, was out of reach for Jessica and her two children, Trinity and Logan, for too many meals. Now, Jessica doesn’t have to worry about being able to provide dinner.
It’s not just a meal, it’s a full plate of potential.
Filling food prescriptions
When illness changes our bodies, it also changes our lives. We may find ourselves hungry for the strength and wellness to play with our kids, return to work, pay the bills and make our mark in the world. FOODRx delivers tailored food prescriptions and education so people get fed, get well and get back to living.
Donor. Volunteer. Food assistance recipient. Heidi has been all three.
As a kid, Heidi was part of a hardworking family that occasionally relied on food assistance to fill their empty fridge. Today, Heidi and her husband volunteer and make a monthly donation to Second Harvest Heartland.

Rescuing and sharing food
Last February, the Twin Cities was in the national spotlight as the host of one of the year’s most-watched televised events, the Super Bowl. Second Harvest Heartland was proud to be part of the festivities, allowing the community to come together to help end hunger.
