Second Harvest Food Bank is a proud member of the Feeding America network.

Here are some current events and promotions benefiting Feeding America and Second Harvest Food Bank:


February 3, 2019 – February 1, 2020

With every $10 spent across the retailers’ pop culture-themed products, BoxLunch will help provide one meal (10¢) to a person in need through the Feeding America network of food banks. Locally, they are at Westfield Oakridge Mall in San Jose.



Brandless sells everything in their assortment for just $3 each, including non-GMO snacks and pantry staples, EPA Safer Choice-Certified household cleaners, compostable tableware and much more. Every time you check out on brandless.com, they donate a meal to Feeding America, so while you stock your shelves, they help someone in need do the same.

Charity Miles


Feeding America is one of ten charities chosen to pilot Charity Miles, a free iPhone/Android app that empowers people to earn money for charity while walking, running or biking. Participants choose one of the app’s featured charities and hit the streets. The app will track the participant’s distance and they’ll earn money for their charity. Bikers earn 10¢ per mile; walkers and runners earn 25¢ per mile—all up to an initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool.

Second Harvest Food Bank will receive 65% of revenue generated by the Charity Miles app in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties.
