DYK more than half of the food that we distribute is fresh produce? "From the farms through Second Harvest, roughly 42 types of fruits and vegetables will make their way to the tables of those in need."
As the holiday season approaches, so does the biggest push of the year to collect canned food and money for Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. But apart from the bags of rice, stuffing, soup and other foods typically collected, more than half of what is distributed by Second Harvest this year will be fresh produce. Of the more than 62 million pounds of food it distributed last year, 33.5 million pounds was produce.
