VOLUNTEER NEEDS – MARCH 20
Many of you have asked how you can help volunteer during this time – thank you!
To protect the health of our volunteers and staff, we have made changes to our warehouse volunteer program. We will have short session volunteer opportunities to help us repack food to distribute to people in need. This will enable us to reduce the number of volunteers at each shift, spread projects out and focus on essential projects at this time.
In an effort to ensure we follow social distancing and avoid large gatherings, we ask that only volunteers who have registered show up for a shift. We genuinely appreciate all support; however, we cannot accept drop-ins.
If you would like to sign up for one of our shorter shifts, please do so here. We will be offering up to six daily sorts that will help support our agencies and Mobile Market by packing bulk product and building emergency food boxes. Thank you for your support!
The health and safety of our volunteers, clients, partners, staff and entire community is paramount. In keeping with CDC guidance, we ask that adults 65 or older, people with serious underlying conditions or who are exhibiting symptoms of any illness, anyone who has traveled internationally, and/or is in any other high-risk group stay home at this time.

Looking for a fun way to celebrate your birthday, company event or holiday? Hosting a fundraiser for Second Harvest is easy and makes an impact. You can raise funds online or host a food drive in person. We’ll give you the tools to get set up, share your event and start collecting. Every dollar donated makes a difference for neighbors experiencing food insecurity.
Steve and his wife both retired from the Army, and he also spent time as a civil engineer in the Navy. His career has been a life of service to our country. Today, he is a member of the civilian workforce at Fairchild Air Force Base.
With economics the way they are today, Steve accesses Second Harvest Mobile Market free food distributions on base.
Naturally cheery, Steve manages a smile even when he explains “Times are hard.” Simultaneously, he proudly adds, “We have two kids, 13 and 14. They eat like crazy and are growing like mad.”
Bite2Go is a weekend food program for students facing chronic food shortages at home. Bite2Go gives children access to a mix of nutritious, nonperishable and ready-to-eat meals and snacks for the weekend, helping kids return to school ready to learn on Mondays. At the heart of the program is the adoptive organization. Bite2Go relies on businesses, churches and civic groups to “adopt” a school, and through that engagement and funding model, provide students with food for the weekends through the school year.
