Second Harvest Food Drive

As you are out shopping for your Thanksgiving Feast this weekend, take a moment to think of all the people who won't be able to afford that turkey with all the trimmings. If you can spare a few extra dollars from your budget, please consider adding some non-perishable items to your grocery cart and donating them to the Second Harvest Food Bank by placing them in one of the many barrels located at SLAC (see list below).

The Second Harvest Food Bank provides food for people in need from Gilroy to South San Francisco and from the Coast to the Bay. In a year they can distribute over 30 million pounds of food to needy families, senior citizens and over 70 partner agencies and distribution sites. Look for signage on the barrels or bags to see what foods are most needed.

This year, barrels are located at:

Building 15 - Lobby

Building 24 - Front and back of building

Building 28 - Front of building

Building 40 - 1st floor lobby
