Our friends at Second Helpings will be joining us at the Market this Saturday for their season opener. Betsy Whitmore of Second Helpings shared their mission with me.

“At Second Helpings, we transform lives through the power of food. We rescue prepared and perishable food, turn it into nutritious meals, and distribute those meals to more than 70 social services organizations that feed hungry people. The meals are delivered to shelters, community centers, and after school programs for those who don’t have access to a warm, nutritious meal.

You can help Second Helpings at the Broad Ripple Farmers Market with the “Buy a Pound, Give a Pound” program. If you would like to give to BPGP; just buy an extra pound of produce at the market. Then drop it off at the Second Helpings booth before you leave.”
