Help End Hunger

September is Hunger Action Month.  Check out our Facebook page for regular updates on how you can make a difference!

Hunger on the Central Coast is everybody’s concern. In Santa Cruz County, high costs of living and decreasing annual household wages force working poor families to stretch dollars even farther to feed their families. According to the 2010 Hunger Study, many local families live with the daily reality of hunger: many households served by Second Harvest now have a monthly income under $500. 45% of Second Harvest clients are children.

The trend of hunger and poverty in Santa Cruz County is alarming. But the good news is you can help!
