Thanks to everyone who voted, we have a winner in the What a Difference a Day Makes contest.

Indianapolis-based Second Helpings earned the grand prize and will receive a $5,000 contribution and 100 hours of volunteer service from Regions associates.

“Second Helpings is thrilled our volunteers and supporters rallied around Regions’ What a Difference a Day Makes contest to vote daily in support of our mission to transform lives through the power of food,” said Katie Prine, Senior Director of Philanthropy for Second Helpings. “This $5,000 gift will provide more than 4,750 meals to Central Indiana residents in need, rescue 31,250 pounds of food, or provide four Culinary Job Training students with the essential learning supplies they need to graduate and achieve self-sufficiency. We’re looking forward to putting this generous gift into action fighting hunger and poverty in our community.”

Founded in 1998 by three local chefs, Second Helpings turns unused food into meals and jobs. Learn more about Second Helpings here.
