“Rent, healthcare and car payments are all fixed costs, but food budgets aren’t, which is why they’re among the first things cut when money is tight. Because of this, children in low-income houses are at higher risk of food insecurity; these children benefit greatly when regular access to healthy food is made available to their households. Second Harvest of Silicon Valley is here to ensure that families don’t have to choose between nutritious food and other necessities. We connect people to a variety of different food resources, including our own grocery distributions held in partnership with community organizations throughout Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.”
