STATUS OF P-EBT BENEFITS AND VOICES OF HOPE – AUGUST 7
STATUS OF P-EBT BENEFITS
Second Harvest has received several questions recently regarding the status of P-EBT benefits. A new COVID-19 stimulus bill is currently being negotiated in Congress. The final content of this bill will determine if pandemic-enhanced benefits, including P-EBT, will be renewed. Families can still apply for the current P-EBT benefit until Aug. 31, or before the start of their child’s school year (whichever comes first). Second Harvest will continue to provide updates as we learn them about P-EBT and other food-related benefits. For more information on P-EBT, click here.
VOICES OF HOPE
“I don’t have a vehicle and usually walk to the food bank in my area. But I haven’t been able to go there since the middle of March. My neighbors came home with extra boxes from Second Harvest, and I got three – one of each. You cannot imagine how grateful I am to have oranges and strawberries for breakfast! And milk and dairy too. Thank you so much for all you do!” -Kelly

Feed. Nourish. Build. – Jun 9
Feed. Nourish. Build. It’s Second Harvest’s work and your impact.
Our team spent time recently more clearly defining how our hunger-relief mission shows up in local neighborhoods because of support from people like you. We developed a new framework for us to talk about the important work we do every day and how the different areas of our work overlap.
The result? Feed. Nourish. Build. Three pillars of our vital work. All are connected, and each is important and contributes to the whole.
Kids Summer Cooking Classes – Jun 2
So many life skills are learned in the kitchen — counting, following directions, teamwork, science, budgeting both time and money, problem-solving, creativity, and more! This is why Second Harvest is passionate about providing kids with the opportunity to build confidence in the kitchen. We’re excited to host two great kids cooking camps this summer in The Kitchen at Second Harvest.

Volunteers of America’s partnership with Second Harvest is an essential part of the services offered at their locations: Hope House, Hope House Apartments and The Marilee Apartments.
