Upcoming Events

NRSSH is excited to host events throughout the year to connect with members, develop professionally, educate and raise the awareness of Second Harvest & raise funds.  Many events are free to members!  Our desire is to host one professional development opportunity, one volunteer opportunity and one social event per quarter.  We hope that you can join us!  Keep an eye out here and on Facebook for updates on our upcoming events.

April 19th - YP Week: NRSSH Your Soul

Second Harvest Foodbank
2802 Dairy Dr, Madison

Join NRSSH (Next Rising Stars of Second Harvest) for an evening of yoga and networking...in the Second Harvest Foodbank warehouse!
We'll kick-off the night with a tour of the warehouse, engage in a 45 minute fun yoga class and then enjoy snacks and beverages with your peers.
NRSSH is excited to be a part of YPWeek this year!

As this event will be held in the Second Harvest Foodbank warehouse, food safety is of utmost importance. You'll need to bring your yoga mat, wear comfortable shoes and we also recommend wearing pants and long sleeves as the warehouse is usually around 65 degrees. It's going to be a blast!  Just a $10 donation!
