Help Us Get Food to Neighbors That Need It
Every day Second Harvest Food Bank moves 37 tons of food through our warehouses and out to where it is needed most--but not before it has been carefully inspected to be sure all food items are safe to eat. That's where our volunteers come in. We welcome individuals and groups every weekday. You can sign up using the links below.
