Bringing healthy food to Silicon Valley
Our work is about all of us joining together to make sure we all have access to the most basic need: food. Founded in 1974, Second Harvest is one of the largest food banks in the nation. We provide food to more than a quarter of a million people in Silicon Valley every month. More than half the people we serve are kids and seniors.
We distribute healthy food, including more fresh produce than almost any other food bank in the country, through a network of 309 nonprofit partners at 985 sites. To reach more people, we connect those in need to federal nutrition programs and other food resources.
EDGE Youth Leadership is an amazing, high-energy experience where students gather with their peers and with leaders in the community to engage in leadership and team building activities. The students explore ideas, expand the breadth of their experiences and challenge themselves and each other to discover how they can make a difference in their own lives, their communities and the world.
A grassroots movement to help those in need-is gaining popularity in the South Bay. The concept is simple. Neighbors stock little pantries with free food. Tucked hidden in the Cambrian Park neighborhood of San Jose behind the San Jose Clubhouse is a box with a blessing, a symbol of hope.
“We see a lot of vulnerable people now, more and more everywhere you go,” said Chris Daly of San Jose. “I see people everyday living in the cars in the shopping centers. Any little bit can help.”
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
