Help Second Harvest Heartland provide a box of nutritious food each month to low-income seniors 60 years and over through the Nutrition Assistance Program for Seniors (NAPS). Seniors are given a box of highly nutritious food. The packages may include canned fruits, vegetables and juices, dry and UHT milk, American cheese, canned meat, peanut butter or dried beans, cereal, rice or pasta. Volunteers in this position assist or lead at a distribution site where Second Harvest Heartland gives out the boxes. We go into the community to make picking up a box of grocery’s convenient to the seniors; we meet them where they are at.

Site Volunteers provide excellent customer service to our clients and work alongside the other volunteers at the distribution. This is a once a month position for 2-3 hours per month. Minimum 1-year commitment.

Current openings:

  • Horn Towers in Minneapolis on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 12:00-1:45pm
  • Ebenezer Park Apartments in Minneapolis on the 2nd Monday of the month from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (focus on carrying boxes)

Mission Statement

The mission of Second Harvest Heartland is to end hunger through community partnerships.

Description

Second Harvest Heartland works to reinvent hunger relief through leadership and innovation. As the Upper Midwest’s largest hunger relief organization, our goal is not only to help our hungry neighbors today, but to provide the means for everyone to be fed tomorrow. We're known for distributing great amounts of food quickly and efficiently. In our most recent fiscal year, our work provided more that 81 million meals for people in the heartland. We are also constantly pioneering ways to reduce waste and better use the abundant resources available in this land of plenty.

Second Harvest Heartland is a member of Feeding America, a national network of more than 200 food banks serving every state in the United States. Membership means access to millions of pounds of surplus food and grocery donations from manufacturers and producers throughout the country.

Working with our network of partners, volunteers and donors as well as people like you, our 90,000+ square feet of dry, refrigerator and freezer space is constantly accepting and distributing donations. Our fleet of trucks travels nearly half a million miles a year, picking up food donations and delivering them to local food shelves, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior community centers and children's after school programs.
