Get Help


Are you, your family, neighbor, or coworker in need of food? At Second Harvest, our goal is to provide help to every person who is looking for assistance. We connect people with the services they need and make sure that everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

Second Harvest hosts tailgate food distributions across our service area. In need of food? Come to this FREE drive-through program. No IDs or proof of income are required.

Directed Initiatives

Because different people need help in different ways, our initiatives work with unique communities.

Are you Feeling Stuck?

Getting Ahead is part of Second Harvest’s Forward STEPS community learning initiative, which works with participants to examine their past to create a new and better future for themselves and their families. Each week a group of people comes together to determine what keeps them stuck and what they can do to get ahead.

Applications are now open for our free Getting Ahead Program.


We at Second Harvest believe that providing help to those in need requires a full community effort. Across our service area there are many organizations that provide a variety of resources to people in need of assistance.
