Our History

Our nonprofit food bank, formerly known as the Arrowhead Food Bank, began February 15, 1984 in Gilbert, MN, as a program of the Arrowhead Economic Opportunity Agency (A.E.O.A.). We were formed to coordinate large donations of food arriving for NE Minnesotaís 14 area food shelves which were assisting thousands of iron mine workers laid off during one of the most difficult economic times in our regionís history.

In 1986, we joined Feeding America (formatly Americaís Second Harvest) and expanded our service area which now includes four Minnesota (St. Louis, Carlton, Lake and Cook) and four Wisconsin (Douglas, Bayfield, Ashland and Iron) counties.

Today, we operate in Duluth, MN, as Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, and rescue nationally and regionally donated food for 120 non-profit agencies and over 43,000 people in need who reside in our service region.
