Give the Gift of Food
San Diego, CA
Hi! my name is Will. As a San Diego native and compassionate human, I feel compelled to help others in my city who have been less fortunate than I. This year, instead of simply donating money, I've decided to #gobeyondgiving by creating a charity campaign. Food advocacy has a special place in my heart because I've been on the other end. I've stood in food lines. I've looked in my cupboard and seen nothing to feed my family. I've received SNAP benefits. It sucks, to put it glibly. I was immensely grateful for food charity and I now feel a duty to help ensure others have the same opportunities I did. In this country where up to 40% of the food supply is wasted, no one should go hungry. But nearly 467,000 people in San Diego County live in poverty and will face the threat of hunger this holiday season. Donating to the San Diego Food Bank is a great way to help ensure food is not on the wish list of San Diego's neediest this holiday season. The Food Bank distributes food in communities throughout San Diego County—which spans a sprawling 4,200 square miles. It does so in two ways: By distributing food directly to people in need at nearly 180 distribution sites every month, and providing food to 346 nonprofit community partners with feeding programs who, in turn, provide food to individuals and families in need. Just one dollar can provide up to five meals to a family in need—imagine how far your $5 or $10 donation would go! Distribution Statistics for Fiscal Year 2014 – 2015 * This year, the Food Bank distributed 22 million pounds of food to San Diego County, which is the equivalent of 18.3 million meals. * A third (7.2 million pounds) of the food distributed last year was fresh produce. * The Food Bank served, on average, over 370,000 people per month in communities and cities throughout San Diego County. * The Food Bank provided weekend backpacks full of food to 1,600 chronically hungry school children at 34 elementary schools every Friday during the school year. * The Food Bank provided 8,400 low-income seniors a box of groceries and staple food items at 45 distribution sites throughout the county every month. Your donation is tax-deductible and will go directly to the San Diego Food Bank. To learn more, visit http://sandiegofoodbank.org.

Help Feed Our Neighbors
Redwood City, CA
Immediately following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday, is a global day of giving that kicks off the charitable season. We hope that on this day of giving, you will consider supporting Second Harvest Food and helping those in need. The Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties feeds 1 in 10 of our neighbors, including Patrick and his family, feature in the video above. Based in Silicon Valley, Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties is one of the largest food banks in the nation. Currently providing food to more than one quarter of a million people every month, Second Harvest is a trusted community-based organization that was founded in 1974. Despite the immense wealth in Silicon Valley, and partly due to the high cost of living, hunger and malnutrition are pervasive. The Food Bank distributes nutritious food, including more fresh produce than any other food bank in the country, through a network of over 320 nonprofit partners at more than 850 sites. Second Harvest is pursuing innovative efforts to increase access to food resources, as it seeks to feed an additional 100,000 hungry people each month. To reach more people, it advocates for anti-hunger policies and connects those in need to federal nutrition programs and other food resources. Learn more about Second Harvest at: www.shfb.org
