Go well, Clyde

Updated: Aug 29, 2019


Friends,


It is with deep sadness that we share that Clyde Fitzgerald, Jr., our former CEO, beloved friend, and passionate advocate for the eradication of hunger in our time, passed away this morning, November 18, 2018.


Our Second Harvest Food Bank family, and all who knew him, will miss Clyde more than words can adequately express. We are committed to honoring his legacy through our continuing work to “provide food and hope to those who have too little of both’ (one of our favorite, always heartfelt, quotes from Clyde).


Clyde was adamant that “hunger is a human tragedy that exists only because we as a community allow it to exist.” Every day, we will strive to achieve his vision, knowing that hunger is a problem that can be solved…working together in our communities.
