Thank you for wanting to help us meet the needs of thousands struggling during the Coronavirus outbreak. In an effort to keep program participants, partner agencies, volunteers, and our staff safe we are temporarily changing the way we distribute food by pre-boxing everything that goes to our partner agencies and to our mobile pantries into Care Boxes.

Your help is critical as the need for Care Boxes continues to increase! It is also critical that if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, or have been exposed to anybody with these symptoms, PLEASE STAY HOME:

  • Fever
  • Sore Throat
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue

We are delighted to welcome volunteers 12 years old and above to participate. Volunteers 12-15 years old must be accompanied by an adult. To ensure safety and fairness, this policy is not flexible.

Due to health and safety concerns, we ask that healthcare facility workers/volunteers do not volunteer with Second Harvest at this time. We are grateful for the contribution you are already making in the community. Please volunteer with us once the Coronavirus outbreak is no longer a concern.

Please note that to make sure we do our part to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, the volunteer projects are set up in large open spaces with appropriate social distancing and the use of a face mask is required.

Thank you!
