Start a virtual food drive

Despite the June 15 economic reopening in California, Second Harvest of Silicon Valley will not be accepting walk-in, community food donations. This policy allows us to continue operating at the highest level of efficiency possible in order to keep up with the demand, which has increased 80% over pre-pandemic levels. Hosting a virtual food drive is a great way to help us meet this demand.
