Second Harvest Heartland's mission is to end hunger through community partnerships. Working closely with partners, volunteers and donors, the organization's aim is to efficiently and effectively end hunger.

Second Harvest Heartland distributes more than 51 million pounds of food and grocery products annually to nearly 1,000 food shelves, soup kitchens, shelters and programs in Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

"On behalf of Second Harvest Heartland and those we serve, I'd like to extend my sincere thanks to Jennie-O Turkey for the recent donations of turkey products,'' said Rob Zeaske, CEO of Second Harvest Heartland. "Protein is a staple in a healthy diet, and we are grateful to partners like Jennie-O for helping us make this food available to our neighbors in need.''
