On January 20, we paused to serve our neighbors and communities in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. This year, we gave our time to Second Harvest Heartland, whose belief is no one should ever go hungry.
Second Harvest provides children, parents and seniors the resources to find their next meal. They procure food from manufacturers, farmers, hotels and restaurants, and hold food drives where they are able to distribute enough food for more than 89 million meals annually, ensuring food safety throughout the entire process. This past Monday, we focused on providing food to the 1 in 8 children who don’t know where their next meal will come from. Alongside other community members, we sorted, repackaged and labeled donated items for children, parents and seniors. As a community, we packed 4,604 pounds of rice, which equals 3,936 meals.
