Second Harvest recently learned that we received another 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. This is the fifth year in a row that we have been given that rating. What does this mean and why is it so important?
Can it really be June already? We have so many things keeping us busy at the Second Harvest – wrapping up Harvest for Hunger, Farmer’s Markets and Volunteer Appreciation -- but top of mind when school is out for summer break is child hunger. For us, it is a year-round challenge and especially now. When everyone else is trying to dial down and relax during the summer months, we know we need to double our effort.
The top volunteer honor of the year, the Jimmy L. Davis Spirit of Community Award, was given to Joseph Geletka at the 2016 Volunteer Appreciation event on May 26, 2016. The top group award, the Harvesters Award, was given to TARGET: District 463 Cleveland West. Gina Sullivan and Paul Kosakowski from Target were on hand to accept the award.
Helen eyes the table of greens and remembers when as a kid they spent summer Sundays sharing dinner with siblings and cousins filling up on plenty of collard greens and other family favorites. She doesn’t eat much these days but it is still a struggle to put together a meal and rarely has she been able include this childhood favorite.
