A quarter of a million people every month get food from Second Harvest Food Bank. We're talking more than half of them children and seniors, and they only can because people like you host food and fund drives. They did, and you can too:


  • October – January Host a Holiday Food and Fund Drive to provide holiday meals to local families in need.
  • March – May Stand up for kids by collecting kid friendly foods and raising funds that directly feed kids and their families.
  • June – September Host a Drive during the summer months when Second Harvest’s donations decline, leaving our local nonprofit partners low on food.
  • All Year Long Run a Permanent Drive to provide a steady stream of food throughout the year. Contact our Donor Relations Team (866) 234-3663 to order your first collection barrel.

Second Harvest Food Bank client Irene thanks our supporters: "Everything they donate is benefiting someone's heart, health, or financial situation. Because they choose to support Second Harvest, the food bank has the resources each month to provide healthy food to our families. It gives us hope. Without donors, none of this would be possible."
