Can't Participate in Second Harvest events?

No problem! With Second Harvest Hero, you can always pick what works for you. Here is a list of fundraising suggestions but if you have another idea for your team, let us know and we’d be happy to help.

Lunch Money Day

The fundraiser that started it all! Hold an office or virtual lunch and have your coworkers bag their lunch instead of purchasing it that day. Then donate those saved funds towards your Second Harvest Hero campaign.

Kernels popcorn

Kernels Popcorn

The perfect snack year-round! Order bags of Kernels Popcorn for $1.25 each and sell them for $2.50 each. Pick a week to run a drive so your coworkers or students can stock up or keep them on hand to fundraise year-round. Email to request a form.

500 bags sold per year (about 40 per month) raised $550 – that provides enough food for over 1,000 fresh, healthy meals.

Bingo card and latte

Office Bingo

Charge an entrance fee and draw a number once a day until someone fills their card. Use a free online card generator to make it easy. This fundraiser works as a great virtual activity too!
