  • About Second Harvest: Second Harvest Heartland works to reinvent hunger relief through leadership and innovation. As the Upper Midwest's largest hunger relief organization, our goal is not only to help our hungry neighbors today, but to provide the means for everyone to be fed tomorrow. We're known for distributing great amounts of food quickly and efficiently; in 2012 alone, we collected, warehoused and distributed more than 76 million pounds of food-but we're also constantly pioneering ways to reduce waste and better use the abundant resources available in this land of plenty.

  • About Founder's Day: In a shady spot under a large cottonwood on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the founders saw the need for an honor society—one that by invitation would recognize scholarship, attitude, and character. The vision of these inspired young men was to promote the highest ideals of the engineering profession and form an organization where professionals and students help each other. Founders Day is a way for members to share the Eta Kappa Nu story, raise awareness of the value that an IEEE-HKN chapter brings to a university, show the many ways a chapter serves fellow students and community, and attract industry support of IEEE-HKN. Today’s IEEE-HKN students are the leaders of tomorrow.
