April 1st marks the beginning our brand new fiscal year for Second Harvest. It signifies the end of a chapter, one which reached beyond our highest expectations yet holds the hopes, the dreams, and the possibilities of a whole new year.
Who doesn’t recognize this little goldfish? All of us, especially children consider this little guy a staple to their diet and reach for a handful. Perfect for lunch or an in-between snack. The main production plant for these and other premium quality bakery products is produced by our friends at Pepperidge Farm, in Willard, Ohio.
How would you like to double the impact of your donation? It's the final days of the Harvest for Hunger campaign, and with the generous support of our partner, Northwest Bank, your donation can have twice the impact.
Next week, all across America, we will honor those men, women and children who have taken the time to say YES to volunteering. National Volunteers Week will be celebrated during the week of April 10-16, 2016.
Can it be March already? Clocks will move forward, sunlight will shine a little brighter, and daffodils will peak through last year’s mulch. Which means we all have work ahead in spring cleaning and yard work but we approach it all with a spring in our step because warm weather is on the way.
Our spring work at Second Harvest just kicked off -- our Harvest for Hunger Campaign -- our largest food and fundraising campaign of the year which will run through March and into April. Just like the cycle of the seasons, there are many months of unseen preparation which go into organizing the campaign, coordinating logistics and working with businesses and the community to make it a success. But just like with the promise of warmer days, we are filled with hope as the community rallies behind us to support our efforts against hunger.
