Make Hunger History

Recognition and awards

Every year community members selflessly raise money and fill barrels with food to help neighbors throughout Silicon Valley. In 2019 these combined efforts helped generate meals that went straight to kids, families and seniors in nearly every neighborhood — from up in Daly City, out to Pescadero and all the way down to Gilroy.

Second Harvest of Silicon Valley would like to invite you to our “home” for a recognition and awards event to celebrate all your hard work!

Awards structure

$1 = 2.5 points
1 pound = 1 point

Formula for total points:
Total Pounds + (Total Dollars x 2.5) = Total Points

*Corporations: per capita figure is calculated by dividing total points by the total number of employees at your local participating campuses.


*Non-corporate drives: per capita figure is calculated by dividing total points by the total number of members in your group.
