Empty Bowls “Unite!”
Second Harvest of the Greater Valley is once again hosting our annual event, Empty Bowls! While it may not look the same, the mission behind it remains, feeding our community. Empty Bowls “Unite” may have a new look and feel, but the mission is the same, shortening the distance between hope and food.
Help Solve Hunger in California
All across California, millions of people don’t know where their next meal will come from. They are making tough choices between rent, groceries and medicine. It doesn’t have to be this way.
NO ONE CAN THRIVE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH
37 million people face hunger in the U.S. today — including more than 11 million children and nearly 5.4 million seniors. Hunger knows no boundaries — it touches every community in the U.S., including our own.
JIF Peanut Butter Recall
Second Harvest of the Greater Valley (SHGV) is aware of Jif Peanut Butter’s current recall. The safety of those utilizing SHGV services is our top priority, and we are doing everything to check all donations of Jif peanut butter against the affected lot numbers. If you have received Jif Peanut butter from SHGV in the last few months, we ask that you please check the lot numbers against the recall to ensure the safety of your food. Likewise, if you are donating Jif peanut butter, please check the lot numbers as well so as not to put those utilizing SHGV services and products at risk. Thank you for allowing us to serve you and the continued support SHGV receives daily.
Second Harvest of the Greater Valley does not receive donations of baby formula regularly. However, as the baby formula shortage continues to impact parents across our service territory, we encourage anyone that has an unopened, unexpired formula they no longer need to donate to please refer to our pantry partners page on the website for a list of places to donate. We appreciate your continued support of SHGV and our partners.
