Providing food for people in need in our community.

Brief History

The Food Bank, Inc. of Santa Clara County was formed in 1974
by Economic and Social Opportunities, and incorporated as a
non-profit agency in 1979. In 1988, the San Mateo County Food
Bank merged with The Food Bank, Inc. of Santa Clara County to
become Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo
Counties.

Second Harvest Food Bank is a certified member of America's
Second Harvest, a network of food banks and food distribution
programs in the United States. This membership allows Second
Harvest Food Bank to cooperate with other member food banks,
to receive food from national corporate food donors, and to
benefit from national publicity and mutual support.

In 1992, Second Harvest Food Bank moved into a new 65,000
square foot warehouse in San Jose which serves as its main
food distribution center. In June of 1995, the Peninsula
Distribution Center began serving San Mateo County in a newly
renovated 22,000 square foot warehouse in San Carlos.
