Once again, we’re teaming up with NBC15’s Share Your Holidays food/fund drive to benefit Second Harvest Foodbank. In the past ten years of hosting a food and fund drive at our office, we have raised nearly 105,000 meals for families facing hunger in our area.

Our goal is to beat hunger and raise 10,000 meals during our 2020 campaign. And we can’t do it without your help! From NOW until December 4th, we’ll be accepting donations – 100% of the proceeds go directly to Second Harvest Foodbank.

 

How can you help?

  1. Donate online here. With every dollar donated, Second Harvest Foodbank is able to provide 3 meals!
  2. Donate by check, sending it to our office (6200 Mineral Point Road, Madison, WI 53705). You can make the check out to Second Harvest Foodbank for a tax-deductible receipt.

 

The Need For Food is Growing

Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin is playing a critical role in meeting the needs of those struggling with hunger in our community in the wake of COVID-19. From March 15, 2020 to October 10, 2020, Second Harvest distributed 11,222,898 pounds of food. That’s 56% higher than the same time period last year. The pandemic is projected to increase the number of people who need assistance finding and buying food in Southwestern Wisconsin by 61%.

Special Thank You

Over the past several years, we’ve hosted a silent auction with all the proceeds going directly to Second Harvest. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we will not host the silent auction in 2020.

However, we would like to extend a special thank you to the local businesses that support our food and fund drive year after year. These local businesses donate items to be used in our silent auctions, which have raised thousands of meals for families facing hunger in our area. You’re truly making a difference in the lives of those in our community!
