Holiday Food & Fund Drive Kickoff
Date: Thursday, November 5, 2020
Time: 11:30am to 12:30pm
Location: Virtual

All funds raised during the Holiday Food and Fund Drive go directly to providing food to our partner agencies and program. For every $1 donated, Second Harvest can provide 4 healthy meals. 

Since March 2020, our food distribution grew from 650,000 pounds per month to 1.2 million pounds per month. The number of Santa Cruz residents receiving food rose from 55,000 to over 100,000. 

Help us meet this need by participating in this year's Holiday Food & Fund drive. As a community, we can stay strong and healthy by providing access to the nutrition families need to thrive.  

We look forward to seeing you at this year's kickoff (virtually)!
