Communities of Caring

Life is hard for many of our clients. Families often have to make impossible choices between food and utilities, or food and rent. The harsh reality is that when families buy food instead of paying their rent, they can end up living in their cars, or worse, out on the street. With your support our community partners provide food and a broad range of programs aimed at helping families build self-sufficient lives - a hand up, not a hand out. But we need your help. Please give what you can to provide nourishment and hope for the 349,000 people in need in Orange County. To learn more about Communities of Caring, visit  




Hunger in America 2014 

 A study by Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County and Feeding America shows that many people in our community are too often 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 must make with while trying to make ends meet on extremely limited incomes. Please take a few minutes to read it. It will show you that the face of hunger is one you might recognize.
