You Can Make a Difference!
Every $1 donated provides 4 healthy meals to those in need. There are over 55,000 working poor parents, children and seniors in need of food each month in Santa Cruz County. Half of those served are children with no other resource for a nutritious meal.
Amazon has teamed up with Feeding America to offer a platform where Second Harvest can register our requests online. To see our wish list, which includes food items as well as diapers, click here.
