Founded in 1972, Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County was the first
food bank in California and is the second oldest in the nation. We began by
distributing food from a parking lot in Santa Cruz to groups operating the
Breakfast For Kids program.
Second Harvest’s mission is to end hunger and malnutrition by educating and
involving the community. Through our network of more than 200 agencies and
programs and over 3,000 volunteers, we distribute over 8 million pounds of
food annually to working poor families, children, and seniors. – less–ZoomInfo
