Holiday Food and Fund Drive 2020

About This Campaign

Help Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County continue to fill the gap and feed hope by providing healthy food throughout the current crisis and beyond.

100% of the funds raised during Holiday Food and Fund Drives goes to providing food to distribute at our partner agency locations.  Second Harvest Food Bank has the ability to provide 4 meals  for $1.  As part of Feeding American we have wholesale buying power. We can purchase truck loads of peanut butter at wholesale, apples for 8 cents a pound, celery at 12 cents a pound etc.  

We distribute food through our partner agencies and our programs throughout Santa Cruz County.  Since March 2020,Second Harvest has doubled the amount of food we are distributing. Our food distribution grew from 650,000 pounds per month to 1.2 million pounds per month. On average the number of Santa Cruz residents receiving food rose from 55,000 to over 100,000. 

If you need help setting up your page please contact aracele@thefoodbank.org or call 831-498-4119.
