Super One donates to Second Harvest after customers support Bag Hunger campaign
Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank received over $48,000 on Friday from Super One Foods.
This was from the Bag Hunger campaign in October, where customers could round up or donate right at the register.
Shaye Moris, Executive Director for Second Harvest, said, “We are so thrilled with this first-ever event. Super One has been a longtime partner. And with this campaign, we will be able to provide 145,000 meals this holiday season.”
Patrick Miner, CEO and President of Super One/Miner’s Inc., shared, “This is when everyone digs deep, during the holidays. People are supporting their friends and neighbors. And we are amazed by their generosity.”
Money also is going to Second Harvest North Central Food Bank in Grand Rapids and food agencies in the Upper Peninsula.
Super One said 42 of their locations across Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the U.P. raised funds for seven local food banks and shelves from October 13th – 30th.
The organizations supported were Second Harvest North Central Food Bank, Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, Walker Area Food Shelf, The Lord’s Cupboard Park Falls, Project Share of Wadena, Roseau Area Food Shelf, and St. Vincent DePaul.
The company-wide total raised for funds was $85,983.20 and approximately 115,230 lbs. of food were collected during the campaign.
