Second Harvest Heartland
Fight hunger, feed hope

Dear Supporter,

You may know that we have temporarily suspended our food packing volunteer shifts due to concerns about staying safe and reducing exposure to illness.

You may not know that Second Harvest Heartland is poised to move our food distribution operations to our new hunger-relief center in Brooklyn Park. And we desperately need the help of experienced and certified volunteer forklift drivers to help us execute this big move!


Up to 12 Volunteer Certified Forklift Drivers Needed


Friday 3/27 or Saturday 3/28, 7 - 11 a.m. and/or 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.


Warehouse Operations Move from Maplewood to Our New Facility in Brooklyn Park


Both Maplewood & Brooklyn Park locations

Volunteer forklift drivers will need to be comfortable operating sit-down forklifts. We request a commitment of at least 4 hours. The environment will be sanitary and we will work to maintain safe distances.

We are the foundation of Minnesota’s hunger-relief system. It’s our priority to continue to get food to our food shelf partners, who are reporting record numbers of visits. We have committed to 200,000 boxes and box components over the next 7 weeks and are working with suppliers and transportation to get the product here as quickly as we can. Now, more than ever, it’s vital that we provide meals to families experiencing hunger.


Thank you for your support!
