Second Harvest Food Bank
Kids need nutritious food to grow up strong and healthy, but in Silicon Valley, families are sacrificing food for housing. That’s why Second Harvest’s campaign “For the Kids” is so critical. A record number of 87,000 kids are receiving assistance every month. But hunger in wealthy areas like Silicon Valley is often hidden, so people don’t realize that many of the kids they see aren’t getting the nutritious food they need to thrive. Donate today “For The Kids.”
Our Urban Forest
“Our Urban Forest” has a mission to cultivate a green and healthy Silicon Valley by engaging community members in the appreciation, protection, and maintenance of our urban ecosystem.
