Reviews for Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties

Rating: 5 stars  

For the past 14 years, I've been honored to be a nonprofit partner and now a board member for Second Harvest Food Bank. During that time, Second Harvest has always been a leading advocate for food and nutrition in our community, and they have scaled their mission to meet the rising needs in Silicon Valley. Kathy Jackson, Executive Director, and the dedicated staff are innovators in the nonprofit sector, engaging business leaders and community members to work to solve hunger issues and shed light on the policy issues affecting nutrition. They truly are thought leaders.
