Ensuring all kids have access to nutritious food is an investment in the future of our community.

Every dollar we receive can provide up to 4 healthy meals, but when you invest today, every dollar you give will be DOUBLED and provide up to 8 meals for those who struggle with food insecurity.

Every child needs healthy food every day.

But for one in two children in Santa Cruz County who face food insecurity, the nutritious food they need to grow is in scarce supply. For these young people, hunger makes it hard to focus, grow, and find the bright future they deserve.

That’s why Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County is committed to alleviating hunger in our community.

Food For Children provides fresh produce, food staples, and nutrition education at sites throughout Santa Cruz County to support healthy families.

From weekend meal kits and summer programs to mobile food pantries and neighborhood distribution centers, Second Harvest ensures that children always have access to the nutritious food they need—not just to survive but to thrive.

Together, we can give young people the opportunity they deserve to grow up healthy and build bright futures. Thank you for partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County in this important work.
