Summer Harvest for Kids


We here at KSTP 5 Eyewitness News were surprised to find out that one third of Minnesota kids get free and reduced-price meals during the school year. Which got us thinking … what about when school ends for the summer?

So 5 Eyewitness News is helping to fill that gap with:


We've teamed up with local leaders in hunger relief and we are working together to make a difference.


Just $20 will feed two kids lunch for two weeks this summer. Last year, our viewers raised $72,000 to buy lunches for Minnesota kids. With your help, we can expand this effort to get Minnesota kids the food they need.

If you prefer, a check can be mailed to:
Second Harvest Heartland
1140 Gervais Avenue
St. Paul, MN 55109

Please put "Summer Harvest" in the memo line
We encourage you to support these programs individually or through our Summer Harvest for Kids campaign!
