Providing Nutritious and Delicious Fresh Produce

Second Harvest Food Bank is proud to participate in the Farm to Family produce cooperative which allows us to provide fresh produce to individuals and families. Many times those that struggle with food insecurity have to forgo fresh produce as they make tough choices at the grocery store.

The Farm to Family program was developed by the California Association of Food Banks to help fill the nutritional void that comes from eating shelf stable foods. Forming lasting partnerships Food Banks have access to over 150 million pounds of fresh produce. Second Harvest’s participation in this program has given us a solid nutritional foundation for our vital programs that serve families, seniors, and youth.
