August 12, 2021: Second Harvest of Silicon Valley is not accepting walk-in, community food donations at this time, including food drives. This policy allows us to continue operating at the highest level of efficiency possible in order to keep up with demand. You can still help fill this virtual barrel with much needed protein, dairy and more.
