Lifting the burden of hunger gives hope

The holidays are a time of celebration and reflection, when we gather together with family and friends to enjoy our favorite meals and traditions. But when the high cost of living forces families to sacrifice putting food on the table in order to pay for other necessities, the holidays feel far from festive.

The cost of living in Silicon Valley has spiraled out of control in recent years, far beyond reach for many of our neighbors. These are parents working jobs that are vital to our community, kids who need nutritious food to grow up strong and healthy, seniors living on fixed incomes, and college students struggling to pay for school.

With hunger at an all-time high, Second Harvest of Silicon Valley is serving more people than ever before. Your support this holiday season will help to keep families healthy by providing the nutritious food everyone in our community needs to thrive.

When the burden of hunger is lifted, parents can look to the future with optimism as they work hard to provide brighter opportunities for their kids. Seniors can stay healthy and independent, and college students can reach for the stars. Thank you for giving hope this holiday season.

“Kids don’t need expensive toys and entertainment to be happy. But they do need nutritious food. It’s the one thing they can’t live without.”

– Natasha, San Jose
