Elaine Streno, Executive Director says, “Please help us keep our FOOD FOR KIDS Summer program flying all summer long. There are more than 11,000 children who are receiving food from our FOOD FOR KIDS Program every week during the school year. We want to be sure these children have the ability to receive the nutritious food they need during the summer as well.”

Our Food For Kids program serves 18 counties and the need is greater than ever. We believe no one should go hungry, especially Children.

Second Harvest is also encouraging the public to stop by their facility to make a donation in person and take a tour of the warehouse. A taco bar will be available as well from 11am-1pm.
