GIVE TODAY

Meeting the need in unprecedented times.

Following the last few years of unpredictability and uncertainty caused by COVID-19, it feels necessary to pause and reflect on the many highs and lows experienced by Second Harvest and the communities we serve. We have reason to be proud of what we’ve accomplished together. And, we are well positioned to do more to address the significant need that continues. Read our Impact Report to learn how our supporters and partners are helping to ensure all of our neighbors have the food they need.

More than 110 partner charities and programs form the backbone of our food distribution network. Food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile distributions and other partnerships serve food and dignity to our neighbors in need across our four-county region.
