Help Us Help Them

APHA’s goal is for every registrant to join in the effort to give something back to our host city charity. Help make a real impact in New Orleans by giving generously to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana.

Through its mission to lead the fight against hunger, Second Harvest Food Bank builds food security in south Louisiana by providing food access, advocacy, education and disaster response. Second Harvest serves approximately 262,800 clients annually, and in any given week, 41,800 people access emergency food services through their networks. Contributions can be made through registration. Every dollar counts! 

This year, APHA had the unique opportunity to partner with the Learning by Giving Foundation, a foundation created by Doris Buffet to advance the next generation’s understanding of philanthropy. Over the course of several weeks, APHA took part in a course on effective charitable giving and ultimately selected Second Harvest Food Bank as the finalist. The Learning by Giving Foundation will grant Second Harvest Food Bank $10,000. Help us match their generous donation and reach our goal of at least $10,000 through Help Us Help Them.
