About Second Harvest

Our Mission:  Providing food for people in need in our community.

This simple idea of giving families a source of food rather than short-term relief caught on and has continued for over 65 years. Today, millions of families in 128 countries have been given the gifts of self-reliance and hope.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties is the trusted leader on ending hunger in Silicon Valley. As Silicon Valley's Food Bank since 1974, Second Harvest is the second largest food bank in the nation, providing food to an average of 247,000 people each month
