We’re celebrating the generous contribution of our volunteers April 17-23, as part of National Volunteer Appreciation Week. Each year 1,300+ volunteers help our programs & assist with office tasks.

Work we couldn’t do without them. In fact, volunteers make up 1/3 of our workforce, adding 6.5 full-time equivalents (FTEs) to our 17-member team adding depth to our hunger-ending bench.

As Steve, a long-time volunteer at our Mobile Food Pantry Program in Cloquet shares about his experience, “As usual, I’m totally impressed by Second Harvest employees. What a good bunch of people. Another successful event, with lots of smiling faces.”
