“I am grateful,” said Lucy, the mother of two, young children. “Second Harvest is a blessing and I know none of their work would be possible without these donations.”
Each year thanks to your support and our region’s retail grocers we rescue more than 2.2 million pounds of food, the equivalent of 1.8 million meals, that might otherwise end up in a local landfill. These produce, dairy, meat and deli donations are quickly distributed to thousands of families, children and seniors in need throughout NE Minnesota and NW Wisconsin.
“Second Harvest is a great partner to work with,” said Patrick Miner, Store Director, Super One Foods/ Miners Inc. “They provide a safe, reliable service for us to prevent unnecessary food waste and get our products to people in need.”
Here’s a sampling of other retail partners who help us feed our Northland neighbors in need:
• Cub Foods
• Sam’s Club
• Whole Foods Co-op
