Review for Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After our father died, our mother supported three young girls on a clerical salary, leaving little money for extras. She struggled to make ends meet, feeding us flour and water biscuits with a small amount of jam the night before pay-day as that was all we had. I know first hand what hunger feels like. It is important to me as an adult of means to support the tremendous efforts of Second Harvest Food Bank in our community. They strive to offer fresh, nutritional, balanced food to the working poor, the seniors and to the hungry children in our community. They have a summer food drive to help feed children not enrolled in a school lunch program. And they do it on a shoestring!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the unwavering commitment to feed the hungry in our community.
