FOOD ASSISTANCE FIGHTING HUNGER AND FEEDING HOPE
Second Harvest of the Greater Valley serves over 350,000 people in need each year through our partnership with more than 90 non-profit agencies. Our food pantry partners visit the Food Bank as often as once per week to select groceries , canned products, grains, dairy, meats and fresh produce.
The agencies then distribute the emergency food assistance to those in need. Emergency food assistance can also be obtained through their food pantries and here at Second Harvest. Providing services like this provides our partners and the ones they serve a very efficient way of receiving the help they need close to their home or work.
The strength of our program is the ability to pick up large-scale donations from retail stores and distribution centers, by centralizing the collection, storage, and distribution of products through the food bank, more individuals are served through food pantries.
Emergency Food Assistance
With the demand of emergency food assistance on the rise, the demand for resources, donations, and volunteers has increased as well. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for local agencies to have the healthy food that many of our neighbors may need. To meet this demand we have increased the amount of emergency food assistance programs and partners we provide. We will continue to expand our reach and do what it takes to help anyone that is in need of emergency food assistance.
