On Tuesday, Magnet volunteers provided 10 hours of food packaging support to the Second Harvest Food Bank in Madison. We spent the evening cutting and sorting 40-pound cheese blocks into smaller two pound packaging, ready for shipment and delivery to local pantries. Second Harvest Food Bank is Wisconsin's largest hunger relief charity; they process and distribute more than a million pounds of food a month, and meet nearly one million requests for service each year. Their food goes directly to support local and 27 of their mobile pantries.
We had a great time working with the charity doing great things for our community. Looking to help out? Second Harvest is always looking for individual and group volunteers. Check out their website for more information. We look forward to notifying our membership of future service opportunities within Magnet.
