Start a virtual food drive

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, Second Harvest cannot support traditional food drives or accept community food donations at this time. Please consider signing up for a virtual food drive (a.k.a. fundraiser) to help Second Harvest respond to the increased need all throughout Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.
