Second Harvest and Heartland Announce Partnership

On Wednesday, a crowd of nearly 100 gathered in the main lobby at Heartland Regional Medical Center to announce a new partnership with Second Harvest.

Check Presentation

The Heartland Board of Trustees approved a donation of $65,000 to Second Harvest to help expand access to nutritious food across the area. The donation will go to purchase apples and carrots for the 1,000 children who are on Backpack Buddies in the St. Joseph School District, supplement fresh produce donations in Fresh Start and provide 250,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables in produce drops in targeted counties.

"Second Harvest is very excited for this partnership with Heartland Regional Medical Center/Mosaic," said Chad Higdon, executive director at Second Harvest. "While Second Harvest works hard every day to provide nutritious food to the 51,000 food insecure individuals in our service area, we can’t do it alone. It takes outstanding businesses that stand up and declare that hunger is unacceptable."
