Second Harvest Heartland – Food Sorting and Packing | 2harvest.org
Sorting, and packing food to be distributed to those that are food insecure in Minnesota and Eastern Wisconsin in Golden Valley, Minnesota. The first project that volunteers conquered was Second Harvest Heartland’s new Food Rx program which focuses on those that are food insecure, and have to follow certain dietary guidelines due to cultural beliefs or health issues (diabetes, heart disease). After completing the quota for the day, our volunteers moved on to sorting, weighing, and bagging yams to be distributed to local food shelves across Minnesota and Eastern Wisconsin. Volunteers packed 5,482 pounds of food, and when broken down each volunteer supplied 233 meals.
