Virtual Food Drive Volunteers

Food and funding for food remain the most critical needs here at Second Harvest. The pandemic has substantially increased the need for emergency food for the foreseeable future. You can help us raise funds to meet the need in Orange County by becoming a Virtual Food Drive Volunteer. Please visit the Virtual Food Drive page to learn more!

Volunteer Service Hours

We are only able to verify volunteer hours on the day of service. If you require hour verification for school or community service, please bring your form with you so our volunteer team can sign off on your hours the day of your shift.

Court-Ordered Community Service Individuals

Second Harvest is no longer providing hour verification for court-ordered community service hours. For information on court-ordered community service, please click here.

For questions, please contact [email protected]

If you can’t volunteer, please give what you can. Remember, $1 helps to provide at least 3 meals. You can donate here.

Thank you for your patience and support as we continue working to end hunger in Orange County!
