Second Harvest Heartland: Worthy Steward of Your Donations
The ,200 sq. ft. addition of the new cooler/freezer was funded by Cargill, Inc. and Sunny Fresh Foods; F.R. Bigelow Foundation; General Mills Foundation; Land O’ Lakes Foundation; Mardag Foundation and the St. Paul Foundation.
The largest ever capital donation came to Second Harvest Heartland this year from the charitable Frey Foundation. This donation enabled SHH to purchase one semi tractor, one straight refrigerated truck, a trailer and logo identification for the vehicles. The shiny, new vehicles arrived with “zeros” on the odometers, replacing expensive leased and high- mileage vehicles that were constantly breaking down.
Six generous donors made the expansion of the cooler/freezer capacity at the Maplewood location possible. The 7,200 square-foot addition allows freezer space
for an additional 483 pallets, a 265% increase, and an additional 194 pallets in the cooler, an increase of 162%. Again, savings were recognized immediately with the release of costly rental off-site freezer space. The expansion will move SHH closer to reaching our goal of a 20 percent increase in the distribution of nutritious frozen foods and enhancing the selection of products for our member agencies.
These investments and countless others are hallmarks of the keen attentiveness to building efficiencies and capacity that has become a driving force of Second
mission to investments
are only possible through benevolence of donors who
one with full access food for everyone.
Purchased with funding from the Frey Foundation, the largest capital gift ever given to SHH, new trucks and trailers replaced leased and high-mileage vehicles.

HUNGER IN AMERICA 2006 study shows hunger is increasing in the Heartland
Hungry people are working families, seniors and children. Families and seniors face tough choices – buying food or paying for housing, healthcare or utilities. Demand for emergency food continues to rise. Those are just some of the findings of the local data from the Hunger in America 2006 study, sponsored by America’s Second Harvest – The Nation’s Food Bank Network. The local study included nearly 500 in-depth individual client interviews as well as responses to an agency survey by member agencies.
