Second Harvest Food Bank operates five USDA commodity distribution centers in Davenport, Live Oak, San Lorenzo Valley, Santa Cruz, and Watsonville. USDA commodities, donated fruits and vegetables, and other foods are distributed to income-qualifying families through the Emergency Food Distribution program. Second Harvest also uses the USDA Emergency Food Distribution to promote other federal assistance programs, such as food stamps, which are under-utilized in our community.
Emergency Food Distribution occurs at Second Harvest Food Bank in Watsonville on the second Monday of each month from 8am-1pm. For information on other distribution sites and times, click here.
