Founded in 1972, Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County mission is to end hunger through healthy food, education and leadership. Second Harvest began by distributing food from a parking lot in Santa Cruz to groups operating the Breakfast For Kids programs. Today, Second Harvest distributes over 10 million pounds of food per year to local hungry families, children, individuals and seniors in our community through nearly 200 partner agencies and programs. Since the COVID pandemic and economic aftermath hit our community, we've more than doubled our distribution and reach in Santa Cruz County.
