Give Back By Supporting Second Helpings

Second Helping

Second Helpings fights hunger in Central Indiana from every angle. They rescue food that would otherwise be thrown away, prepare it, deliver it to local nonprofits for free, and train people for careers in the culinary industry. Each year they deliver more than a million meals – many of them to kids and seniors. APPA is proud to partner with Second Helpings, please join in the fight against hunger and don’t miss out on this opportunity.
