MAKING A DIFFERENCE.

IMPORTANT HEALTH & SAFETY NOTICE: 

Now, more than ever, Second Harvest Food Bank is being called upon to support people who are facing food insecurity in our community. We cannot provide these services without support from volunteers. We understand that there are concerns about volunteering amid the COVID-19 outbreak, and we take these concerns seriously.

 

We are centered on protecting our staff, volunteers, partner agencies, and people facing hunger during this public health threat. To protect the health of our volunteers and staff, we have made changes to our volunteer program: reducing the number of volunteers at each shift and cutting non-essential projects. These are crucial in our efforts to protect you, us, and the food we distribute.

Every day, Second Harvest moves some 40 tons of food. We rescue food and receive contributions from our local grocery partners, as well as collect food at food drives. We rely on our generous volunteers to help us sort, inspect, and ensure the safety of the food in preparation for distribution to our partner network.
