This is a Walk-Up site with Farmers' Market Client Choice that takes place outdoors.

Food distribution is a hands-on volunteer activity. Activities could include assisting with set up, unloading and moving food from pallets, sorting and distributing food, and clean up. This is a great chance for volunteers to interface with our clients. Some volunteer jobs require some heavy lifting (25lbs.) and regular movement.

The volunteer must be willing and able to work with people of different backgrounds and nationalities, exhibit compassion and sensitivity, and maintain strict confidentiality of all member and volunteer information.

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.
