Through the compassion and commitment of our donors, volunteers, agency partners, board and staff, we take a strategic approach to feeding the hungry of NE Minnesota and NW Wisconsin.
Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank is a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit and is the largest hunger-relief organization in the Northland. Each year we distribute over 7 million pounds of food, or enough food for 5.6 million meals, which feed approximately 44,000 of our Northland neighbors in need. Our distribution occurs through a network of effective regional agency partners and through our own direct service programs including our: Food Shelf, Mobile Food Pantry, Nutrition Assistance Program for Seniors (NAPS) and BackPack Program.
We are committed to providing nutritious food to our Northland neighbors in need, supporting their healthy lives and our healthy communities.
We are a member of Feeding America™, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization.
