Second Harvest Heartland Announces 2013 Hunger Heroes

Stocks in this article: SENEA SENEB TGT UNH

Innovation: The Sweet Corn Rescue TeamSix hundred thousand pounds of sweet corn made their way to hungry families last summer thanks to the partnership of local food relief groups and corporations in a new food rescue pilot project.

Cargill, General Mills, Hunger-Free Minnesota, SUPERVALU, and Seneca Foods Corporation came together in partnership with Second Harvest Heartland to provide transportation, equipment, warehouse space, and financial support to rescue corn that would have otherwise gone to waste and deliver it to those in need. This first-of-its-kind agricultural surplus initiative is planned to be repeated this year.

Financial: TargetSupporting communities through giving has always been a cornerstone of Target's business, and its widespread support of Second Harvest Heartland is a testament to that commitment to community.

In 2012, Target was Second Harvest Heartland's largest financial donor. Target provides invaluable support to Second Harvest Heartland in more visible ways through employee volunteerism, food donations and sponsorship of the Target Meals for Minds school pantry program, which has distributed more than one million meals to local kids and families in the last two years.

Awareness: The Boston Consulting GroupThe Boston Consulting Group (BCG), in conjunction with Hunger-Free Minnesota, designed a unique data analysis tool, "Community Close-Up," that combines data on food insecurity and missing meals within each census tract in Minnesota.

This tool provides insight into how we can fight and understand hunger at a very local level and allows us to better target high-need, underserved populations in our communities. BCG's leadership on this project will continue to have a significant influence on hunger-fighting strategies across our state and region.

Food: Edling Farms Edling Farms, a family-run potato grower in Clear Lake, Minn., has donated more than four million pounds of potatoes to Second Harvest Heartland since 2003 and continues to be one of our largest suppliers of fresh food grown right here in the heartland.

Through generous donations, the growers helped spearhead a key initiative to efficiently collect excess produce, enabling Second Harvest Heartland and partners to provide locally grown, farm fresh food to our neighbors in need—and in turn, Edling Farms has helped set an important example for growers and processors alike.
