BP Helps Second Harvest Heartland #FillAnotherTable

This fall, we’re sup­port­ing client Sec­ond Har­vest Heart­land in launch­ing “Fill Anoth­er Table,” a local cam­paign to raise aware­ness of hunger and help end it local­ly – and we’ve been col­lab­o­rat­ing on every­thing from strat­e­gy to graph­ic design to media rela­tions (did you see us on WCCO this morning?!).

With an orange fork as the icon of the cam­paign and a reminder of the impor­tant issue, Sec­ond Har­vest Heart­land and sev­er­al hunger relief part­ner orga­ni­za­tions are ask­ing for the community’s help in pro­vid­ing 12 mil­lion meals.
