Giving Back

   Posted by: anj68   in community, Food, giving back, News

One of the non-profits I support is Second Harvest Heartland.  Second Harvest Heartland is the Upper Midwest’s largest hunger-relief organization with a mission of ending hunger through community partnerships, and is a 501(c)(3)nonprofit organization.  They count on volunteer hours, food and cash donations.  

Last month, my place of employment hosted a Week of Service where employees are encouraged to give back to the community via donations of goods or services.  Several of us volunteered a couple of hours to Second Harvest.  It was fun and educational.  

At the end of the run each year at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, my members of my kitchen donate our tips to Second Harvest Heartland.  For every $1 that is raised $9 of food is purchased for the community.  

If you would like to consider a donation, visit their donation website HERE.  Every little bit helps and offers an opportunity to help those less fortunate.
