As a nonprofit with limited budget and resources, Second Harvest relies heavily on the generosity of the community to help fund a long-term relief effort for those whose lives have been damaged by the COVID-19 pandemic. Financial donations are the best way to provide support right now. Second Harvest can turn a $1 donation into four meals.
