Needing help with food is often unexpected, and the stories we hear every day prove it.
• Steve, a single father, had to rely on his local food shelf after suddenly losing his job, the day after his 16-year-old daughter was diagnosed with cancer.
• Mary and Bill both work, but with three young children and ailing parents to care for, they now live paycheck-to-paycheck and struggle to find enough to eat for everyone in the house.
• Rachel is struggling to find housing and enough to eat after the recent divorce from her husband. She is a chef so she can get creative with the little food they have, but she’s barely getting by.
With your help, we can turn hunger into hope for the tens of thousands of neighbors in crisis we and our partners serve every month, if even for a short time until they get back on their feet.
When you commit to making a monthly gift to Second Harvest Heartland, you deliver the help our neighbors need now, and help us plan for the months ahead so we have enough food each month to meet the growing need in our community.
For every $10 you give, we’ll provide a meal-a-day every day for a month to a neighbor in need.

On behalf of those we serve, thank you.
