Job Description

About Second Harvest Food Bank

Founded in 1974, Second Harvest of Silicon Valley is a trusted leader in ending local hunger, distributing healthy groceries through a network of 309 partners at 985 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 and housed by providing enough nutritious food for 57 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.
