About Us

We were founded with a bold and compassionate vision to create a hunger-free Northland.

Second Harvest Northland’s mission is to End Hunger Together in NE Minnesota and NW Wisconsin. We take a strategic approach to our work in partnership with our neighbors who have experienced hunger, our agency and community partners, volunteers, donors, employees and board of directors.

We are the Northland’s largest, non-profit charitable organization ensuring dignified and equitable food access to our network of agency and community partners (food shelves, on-site meal programs, tribal organizations) and families, children and seniors in need.

We are proud to be a member of Feeding America® the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States.

Through our nationwide network of more than 200 food banks, we collectively raise awareness, funds and share our surplus food, providing millions of meals to people facing hunger each year.
