WHAT we do

We provide food for needy families efficiently through our innovative direct-service programs, such as our Family Harvest program, and by collaborating with a network of 326 partner non-profit agencies operating at more than 700 different food distribution sites. Our partners include shelters, pantries, soup kitchens, children's programs, senior meal sites, and residential programs.

WHO we are

Second Harvest Food Bank is the primary source of donated, surplus, and purchased food for non-profit agencies in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. The majority of people we serve are seniors and low-income families with children. Between July 2009 and June 2010, we distributed over 45.5 million pounds of nutritious food to low-income people in need in every zip code of our service area from Daly City to Gilroy, and from the ocean to the bay.

WHY we do it

How would it feel to never know where your next meal was coming from, or if it was coming at all? Due to the economic downturn, an increasing number of families across the country are going without food and other necessities year-round. Our mission is to help the thousands of children and seniors in the Bay Area who are at risk of going hungry each day. You can help us accomplish this with your celebration! Here are how some other kids have helped...
