Second Harvest Food Bank Facts:
Who We Are
Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties is the trusted leader dedicated to ending local hunger. Since its inception in 1974, Second Harvest has become one of the largest food banks in the nation, providing food to nearly a quarter of a million people each month. The Food Bank mobilizes individuals, companies, and community partners to connect people to the nutritious food they need. More than half of the food distributed is fresh produce. Second Harvest also plays a leading role in promoting federal nutrition programs and educating families on how to make healthier food choices.
What We Do
In fiscal year 2015 (July 2014 – June 2015), we distributed more than one million pounds of nutritious food each week to low-income people in need in every zip code of our service area from Daly City to Gilroy, and from the ocean to the bay.
We provide food efficiently through our innovative direct-service programs (see below) and by collaborating with a network of nearly 330 partner non-profit agencies operating at 700 different food distribution sites. Partner agencies include shelters, pantries, soup kitchens, children’s programs, senior meal sites, and residential programs.
