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.
The perfect snack year-round! Order bags of Kernels Popcorn for $1.15 each and sell them for $2.25 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Hold a fundraising draw for extra vacation days, a gift card, or a premium parking spot at the office. Our team can provide you with the right online page to make your draw a success! Email email@example.com for more information.
The Good Challenge
The GOOD Challenge is on a mission to make doing good memorable, fun, and shareable.
Our Challenge Packs that give back come in a book with 10 challenges and include adventurous games and activities that will push you out of your comfort zone and get you trying new things. For every Challenge Pack purchased, $10 will be donated to Second Harvest!
