DID YOU KNOW? Approximately 40,900 households or about 93,000 residents of Santa Cruz County were at risk of experiencing food insecurity (UCSC Blum Center on Poverty, 2019). Since March 2020, all indications are that the need has increased dramatically. While government assistance programs play a crucial role in reducing food insecurity, the county food bank and nonprofit partners assist thousands of county residents who do not qualify for state and federal assistance.
Join us in donating to the Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County to support our community members impacted by hunger.
This virtual giving opportunity will be open to receive donations September 1 - November 30, 2022.
