About this organization








Our mission is to end hunger in our community. Our volunteers, donors and supporters help us provide food to families, multi-generational households, seniors and college students. We offer more than just nourishment, we are helping people in our own community feel a little more secure and find joy in the pleasure of cooking and sharing a meal with loved ones.


Second Harvest is committed to doing whatever it takes to build a hunger-free community. That means distributing nutritious food to nearly every neighborhood in Silicon Valley, leveraging every available food resource, and collaborating with organizations and people who share our belief that hunger is unacceptable. Nutritious food is the foundation for a healthy, productive life.
