Second Harvest Heartland, the Upper Midwest's largest hunger relief organization, has announced the recipients of its third annual Hunger Hero award, an award created to honor and recognize organizational partners who make a compassionate and transformational impact on those who are hungry in the heartland.
Hunger Heroes are recognized in six categories, each of which is critical to Second Harvest Heartland's mission of ending hunger through community partnerships and all of which must work in tandem to collectively achieve that goal.
The Schwan Food Co. won a Hunger Hero award in the food category. In giving the award to Schwan, Second Harvest said "The Schwan Food Co. is known for providing good food with a community focus, and now that focus centers on local families in need. Food is the core of Second Harvest Heartland's business, and generous donors like Schwan, who contribute healthy, nutritious food, are crucial to our work."
Second Harvest Heartland, the Upper Midwest's largest hunger-relief organization, works to reinvent hunger relief through leadership and innovation so as to help those who are hungry today and provide the means for those who are hungry to be fed tomorrow.
