The Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19) struck the US in December 2019 and by March 2020, it influenced every aspect of Second Harvest’s regular operation. Throughout the pandemic, Second Harvest never closed the doors.
In the months following the March 2020 COVID-19 lockdown, Second Harvest saw a 26 percent increase in need in the community.
From March to June 2020, on average, 10 semi-truckloads of food were delivered each week to keep up with the demand for food.
Second Harvest packed and distributed 37,255 Emergency COVID Relief Boxes.
