Join Second Harvest of the Greater Valley for an intimate look at our Strategic Goals and Initiatives for the next 3 years as we work to end hunger. Empty Bowls “Unite” will be a morning you won’t soon forget as we tell the stories of the Agency Partners that make our last-mile distribution efforts possible. Our one-of-a-kind event will include brunch, activities, tours, and a chance to speak with our Agency Partners to learn more about what they see each day in their efforts to end hunger in our communities. The face of hunger continues to evolve daily and we need to equip our Agency Partners with the tools and equipment they need to continue growing their reach to efficiently serve our neighbors in need.
While the immediate health risk of the pandemic has lessened, the impact it has had on the economy has not. SHGV along with our Agency Partners are still seeing numbers of people in need well above the norm. We have all continued to push through to ensure those that are struggling are not going without the life-sustaining food items they so desperately need and depend on.
Through it, all our hardworking and dedicated Agency Partners (food pantries) have continued to show up and provide even when they may not have what they need to adequately continue. SHGV works with more than 90 neighborhood churches, community organizations, and county agencies. We are working towards helping them continue to build their capacity so that they can not only meet the high demand they are seeing but thrive during these difficult times.
Your donation to Empty Bowls “Unite” will allow SHGV to come alongside our partners and provide them with the opportunity to purchase the necessary equipment they need to continue expanding their services. Items like additional shelving, refrigeration, freezers, and pallet jacks. Things most people assume all food pantries will have but they oftentimes do not. Your sponsorship is so much more than a donation, its an opportunity for a community pantry to thrive and meet their maximum potential.
The deadline to respond is Monday, September 5, 2022.
