Second Helpings

Each day, Second Helpings volunteers and staff rescue prepared and perishable food from wholesalers, retailers and restaurants — preventing unnecessary waste. That rescued food is used to create 4,000 hot, nutritious meals each day that are distributed to 80 social service agencies that feed people in need.

The Second Helpings Culinary Job Training program trains disadvantaged adults for careers in the food service industry. This helps eliminate hunger at its source. More than 700 adults have graduated from this program, and Second Helpings alumni are now working in Central Indiana as cooks, executive chefs, business owners and culinary instructors.

To support Second Helpings in its mission to combat hunger in central Indiana, Wabash alumni and friends volunteer each WABASH Day. They’ve cut meat and vegetables, washed the delivery vans, and performed some basic landscaping. And as a bonus, Second Helpings treats its volunteers to a free lunch straight from its kitchen.
