About Second Harvest of Silicon Valley
Founded in 1974, Second Harvest of Silicon Valley is a trusted leader in ending local hunger,
distributing healthy groceries through a network of 310 partners at 1,000 sites in Santa Clara
and San Mateo counties. This also makes Second Harvest one of the largest food banks in the
nation. Due to the prohibitively expensive cost of living in Silicon Valley, hunger is at an all-time
high as more and more families are forced to sacrifice nutritious food for housing. Second
Harvest is helping to keep people healthy by providing enough nutritious food for over 58 million
meals a year — half of which is fresh produce. Second Harvest also connects people to federal
nutrition programs and other food resources, and advocates for anti-hunger policies on the
local, state and national levels. To learn more about how Second Harvest is building a hunger-
