A Note From Julie: Be an Advocate in 2015

For the past three years we have been working tirelessly toward the goal of building a new facility to expand our capacity and ability to help more of our neighbors in need across our 4-county service area.  One of the pillars of the new Nordson Food Distribution Center is increased refrigeration capacity so we can provide more healthy and fresh foods, often seen as a luxury to families and children.  Providing fresh produce to our network of over 100 partner charities is a priority we are committed to at Second Harvest.

Hunger can make someone feel hopeless, helpless, and alone. Every day thousands of people turn to one of our over 100 partner charities for a warm meal, fresh produce, or groceries to take home to their families.
