All-City Swim Meet Food/Fund Drive Challenge
All-City Swim League pools and their communities are once again competing in the annual Food/Fund Drive Challenge to raise meals for Second Harvest Foodbank's Madison-area partner food pantries and Kids Cafe Program sites who serve community members struggling with hunger. The goal is to raise 185,000 meals!

Volunteer at Second Harvest
Volunteering is a great way to learn how your donations support Second Harvest Foodbank's mission of helping people who struggle with hunger. Children age 12 and older are invited to volunteer in the Foodbank's warehouse; kids ages 12-15 require adult supervision. All volunteers receive a tour. To schedule a volunteer experience, contact DeNae Gitonga at 608-216-7214.
Second Harvest Tours
Ending hunger requires all possible helping hands, but for safety reasons, Second Harvest Foodbank volunteers must be age 12 or older. With adult supervision, children age 11 and under are invited to tour the Foodbank. To set-up a tour for your pool, contact Anna Nelson at 608-216-7205.
