Executive Director Shaye Morris says money that's donated will help many people in need. 

"We leverage nationally and regionally donated food that we bring into Duluth," she says. "We distribute it out again to about 180 non-profit programs in our region. We estimate that we reach about 44,000 northland residents in need every year."

The money also supports the many direct service programs Second Harvest runs. 

Good Morning Northland will host their annual "Have a Heart, Help a Neighbor" broadcast with Second Harvest at the Coppertop Church in Duluth on Friday, December 8. They'll be collecting food and cash donations from 5:00-9:00 a.m. Please stop by if you can!
