What Happens After You Hit Submit?
Our Partnerships & Impact staff will review your request and follow up with you. If certain preliminary eligibility requirements are met, we will send your organization a Partner Agency Application.
Your organization submits a Partner Agency Application and other required documentation to the Second Harvest Food Bank.
Our Partnerships & Impact staff reviews the application and contacts your organization to clarify any questions and/or to arrange an on-site visit to the program location.
Following a successful on-site visit, selected staff from your organization, including the Director and those most closely involved with the food assistance program, will be required to attend an orientation session at the Second Harvest Food Bank. Sessions are held every third Wednesday from 10 a.m.-noon.
The application process takes a minimum of 6-8 weeks, but can vary depending on how soon we receive the application documentation, how quickly we can schedule a visit to your organization, and the availability of your agency representatives to attend an orientation session.
