Everyone should have access to healthy food. Second Harvest provides nutritious groceries and fresh produce at distribution sites throughout Santa Clara and San Mateo counties. These sites are volunteer-run and rely on committed, dedicated volunteers who can support the effort on an ongoing basis. We invite you to join us in providing a warm and welcoming environment for our clients.

Activities could include assisting with set up, unloading and moving food boxes from pallets, loading boxes into the cars of our clients, and site clean up. This volunteer activity does require some heavy lifting (15-30 lbs.) and regular movement. Volunteers must be wiling and able to work with people of different backgrounds and nationalities, exhibit compassion and sensitivity, maintain strict confidentiality of all member and volunteer information, as well as follow all guidelines and instructions provided by the site leader.
