Hunger Action Month

You can GO ORANGE for the entire month of September to show your support for Hunger Action Month and our mission to end hunger in southwestern Wisconsin.  See below to learn how!

  • "30 Ways in 30 Days" calendar. Download the printable calendar for daily ways to make a difference giving funds, food, time and voice.

  • Give food and funds. Organize a community food/fund drive or event with your business, civic, faith-based or youth group to collect financial and non- perishable food donations. Every $1 donated provides 3 meals and each 1.2 pounds of food provides 1 meal. Start your Food/Fund Drive or Event now.
  • Give time. Volunteers are critical to Second Harvest's operations. Individuals and groups are needed for fun projects with flexible hours. Learn more about volunteering.
  • Give voice. Visit Second Harvest's Facebook page to raise your voice against hunger now and make sure to use #Orange4SHFB and #HungerAction in all your posts.


Adopt-A-Dairy-Cow

Ongoing

Adopt-A-Dairy-CowMilk is a protein-rich product that is rarely donated to Second Harvest. On average, we can only provide approximately 1/3 of the milk that is requested by our partner agencies.

But you can help! This June, to celebrate June Dairy Month, we're looking for 650 "adopters" to adopt the milk production of a cow for a day for just $36.  If you are interested in learning more about sponsorship opportunities, please email Laura Gaffney or call 608.216.7205.

Beyond feeling good about helping those facing hunger this Summer, each adopter will receive an Adoption Certificate that features the "sassy" bovine beauty of their choice. 

What are you waiting for? With your help we can turn June Dairy Month into June Dairy Summer! Adopt-A-Dairy-Cow now!
