ShareCorps-SH North Central-Hunger&Health Associate
 
 
 
Over the past 10 years, Second Harvest has tripled distribution of food and grocery products to our network of partner charities. Many children, senior citizens, veterans, and families living on fixed incomes are trying to make ends meet in an economy that is struggling to recover. Second Harvest Food Bank continues to support and strengthen our partnerships and programming in order to address the issue of hunger in our service region. We look for innovative ideas to ensure those at risk have access to nutritious food. Second Harvest continues to be an exemplary steward of the resources entrusted to us serves our region with compassion and integrity.
