~About America's Second Harvest~
Food provides the foundation for success and growth in life. America’s Second Harvest Network provides food assistance to 25 million people each year, including nearly nine million children. Through the power of our Network of emergency food providers, every dollar you donate provides 16 meals, and the hope of a brighter and more fulfilling tomorrow.
This charity gives many options for us to help. You can simply donate money that will go to buying food or donate food. There are as many different ways to volunteer, as there are individuals and communities across this country.
You can help out in your local community through activities such as:
-tutoring kids at your local Kids Cafe
-repackaging donated food for use at food pantries
-transporting food to charitable agencies
-clerical work at the National Office
Its simple - get involved today - and get your family and friends involved. Search for volunteer opportunities in your local community .
