Hunger in America 2014

A new study by Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County and Feeding America shows that more than 277,000 people in Orange County need the help of Second Harvest and its community partners to feed themselves and their families. Many in our community are too often are confronted with choices between paying for food and paying for other essentials. This study presents a revealing snapshot of the people served by Second Harvest - their circumstances, the challenges they face and the choices they are forced to make while trying to make ends meet on extremely limited household incomes. Please take a few minutes to read it. It will show you that the face of hunger is one you might recognize.

22nd Annual Harvesters Fashion Show and Luncheon

Since 1992, the Harvesters have been dedicated to serving Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. The Harvesters Luncheon and Fashion Show is brought to  you entirely by many dedicated volunteers, allowing 100% of every underwriting dollar to be sent directly to Second Harvest. The event will be held at Segerstrom Center for the Arts and is presented by South Coast Plaza.
