Throughout the year, we host events for our partner agencies, donors, policymakers and other community supporters.

Harvest of Knowledge Conference

This annual conference is an opportunity for our partner agencies and site leaders to learn, network and celebrate local hunger-fighter leaders.

Hunger Action Summit

The Hunger Action Summit brings together civic leaders, policymakers and hunger advocates to spark conversation and inspire collaboration to end local hunger. Organized in partnership with Santa Clara University, the summit is co-sponsored by Santa Clara University’s Food and Agribusiness Institute, part of the Leavey School of Business, and held at SCU’s Locatelli Center.

Legislative Breakfasts

Representatives from all different levels of government – local, state and federal – are invited to our legislative breakfasts to learn more about Second Harvest, our legislative priorities, and how they can help us achieve our vision of a hunger-free community.

Planned Giving Seminar

We host an annual informational session for donors who are interested in including Second Harvest of Silicon Valley in their long-range financial or estate plans.
