I wanted to share an upcoming volunteer opportunity to the Twin Cities viewers. This is a one time deal on April 15th 1-4pm. Helping others is a good thing. 🙂
Second Harvest Heartland works to reinvent hunger relief through leadership and innovation. As the Upper Midwest’s largest hunger relief organization, our goal is not only to help our hungry neighbors today, but to provide the means for everyone to be fed tomorrow. In 2010 alone, we collected and distributed over 60 million pounds of food. We’re also pioneering ways to reduce waste and better use the abundant resources available in this land of plenty. Second Harvest Heartland is a member of Feeding America, a national network of more than 200 food banks across the United States. Volunteers at our Minneapolis facility work in groups to sort and re-package donated food. Examples include pinto beans, rice, and pasta.
