How can 49 million people face hunger in a country that wastes billions of pounds of food?
There is more than enough food in America to feed every man, woman and child. Yet, here in north central Minnesota, thousands of people face hunger during the holidays and throughout the year. As individuals, charities, businesses and government, we all have a role to play in getting more food to people in need. Together, we can solve hunger and ensure that everyone has enough to eat this holiday season and all year long.
Second Harvest North Central Food Bank provides over 3.5 million meals for people in need every year and leads the fight against hunger in our community. As a member of Feeding America, we also play a vital role in solving the problem of hunger nationwide.
As we gather together this Thanksgiving, we are thankful for the opportunity to share an abundant meal with our family and friends. At the same time, let us remember that many in our community are struggling every day to put just a little food on the table. Thanks to the generous support of so many donors and volunteers, Second Harvest is able to help thousands of hungry kids, seniors on low fixed incomes, disabled adults and hard working families. I’m so thankful for this community’s support for Second Harvest Food Bank.
Donate. Volunteer. Advocate. Together we can solve hunger.
