Donate Food

COVID-19 update: Second Harvest is not accepting walk-in, community food donations, including turkeys, at our three warehouse locations to maintain social distancing standards and operate at the highest level of efficiency. Reintroducing the process of accepting, weighing, sorting, transporting and boxing a mix of miscellaneous donations would disrupt new processes created to help serve double the amount of people who needed food since the pandemic began.

Please consider donating funds to help purchase the foods we most need. If you already have food you would like to donate, please contact our donor relations team at or 866-234-3663 to be referred to partners of ours.

Share your food

Many families in our area need a little help putting food on the table. They shouldn’t have to choose between paying rent or buying healthy groceries. You can help by making food donations. Your support is greatly needed and appreciated.

Ways to donate food

Walk-in, community donations

To maintain social distancing standards and operate at the highest level of efficiency, we are not accepting community food donations, including food drives and turkeys. You can still help fill this virtual barrel!

Large-scale food donations

Local companies can save money and reduce waste while helping the community. We receive millions of pounds of food from local businesses, which help us feed kids, families and seniors every month.

Grocery rescue donations

We coordinate scheduled donation pickups with local grocery retailers so food close to its expiration date can be used to feed our hungry neighbors instead of going to waste.
