Tech Feeds Hope 2021
About This Campaign
Tech Feeds Hope's strategy is simple - Diversify and broaden giving patterns for the food bank to include a larger percentage of support from technology companies and tech professionals who live, work, visit and play in Santa Cruz County.
One factor contributing to food insecurity in Santa Cruz County is our close proximity to Silicon Valley, and the effects that has on housing and access to affordable housing. On average only about 13% of the population in Santa Cruz County can afford to buy a home.
Combining job losses and furloughs, the housing crisis and food insecurity our community is more vulnerable than ever.
This is why we need your partnership! Second Harvest is experiencing a 100 percent increase in the need for food assistance due to the pandemic's economic effects.
Hunger is not inevitable. The food bank is working harder than ever to feed people and advocate for policies tackling the root causes of hunger. But these efforts all take a strong flow of county-wide support (and beyond) to make it work. Only with adequate food and nutrition can children learn, adults work, and our communities thrive.
Commit to ending hunger in Santa Cruz County today.
Every $1 provides 4 healthy meals for people in need. A $25 donation provides enough food to fill a barrel. Be a part of the solution as Tech Feeds Hope to the community of Santa Cruz County!
