Second Harvest Food Bank Helps over 35,000 individuals in need each month in San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties!

Second Harvest Food Bank acquires and stores donated and purchased food and effectively organizes and delivers it to our partner agencies and program sites, where it is then prepared and distributed out to those in need.

Incredible Communities!!!

We accomplish so much through our programs… Mobile Fresh, Food Assistance, Food 4 Thought, and Senior Brown Bag.

We partner with over 90 non-profit agencies, various community centers and many schools to help us distribute approximately 15 million pounds of food each year.
