Thank you for feeding hope!

Join Food & Fund Drive Co-Chairs Carlos J. Palacios, Santa Cruz County Administrative Officer, and Cynthia Larive, Chancellor at UC Santa Cruz, as we come together to make sure everyone in Santa Cruz County has access to healthy food! This years’ goal is:

5.0 Million Meals

Help Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County continue to fill the gap and feed hope by providing healthy food throughout current challenges and beyond.

100% of the funds raised during Holiday Food and Fund Drives goes to providing food to distribute at our 165 partner agency and program locations.
Second Harvest Food Bank has the ability to provide 4 meals for $1.
Distributions have doubled since March 2020

We hope you can be a part of the action this year. Be a Hunger Hero and join us!
