Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr - National Day of Service

"Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve."

In honor of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Second Harvest Food Bank will be hosting a food distribution for our neighbors in need on January 18th, 2021, giving YOU an opportunity to serve. 



Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!

At Second Harvest, we believe EVERYONE DESERVES TO EAT. We are the primary source of food for a network of 430+ food assistance programs across an 18-county service area. Each day of the week, we move 40 tons of food through our warehouses and out to where it is needed most.

Second Harvest cannot do what we do without the support of wonderful volunteers like you. Together, we make individual lives better and our communities healthy and hunger-free.

Due to the nature of this event, heavy lifting will be involved for most volunteer positions. Please be sure to read all information below before registering to serve. You must be 16 years old or older to volunteer for this event.
