GiveMN - MSNA SNIP ConferenceWe are excited to partner with Second Harvest North Central Food Bank for our service project this year. This branch of Second Harvest serves over 115 hunger relief agencies in Aitkin, Cass, Crow Wing, Itasca, Koochiching, Kanabec and Mille Lacs counties in North Central Minnesota. They are located in Grand Rapids and administer several programs that distribute over 4.5 million pounds of donated and purchased food and grocery products directly to individuals and through agencies that serve the needy.

Participants and Industry Partners will be able to make donations directly online to Second Harvest. We will also be taking donations at the conference.
