While monetary donations are the most critical and we can really stretch the dollars you donate, we’re also grateful for food donations. Many families appreciate turkeys so they can have a traditional holiday meal. Our turkey goal this year is 24,000.

If you are donating a turkey, frozen turkeys are best, but they should not be placed in the Second Harvest food collection barrels that are located at grocery stores, libraries, community centers and other sites throughout the community. Frozen turkeys should be brought to one of our three facilities.

Other healthy food items are also appreciated – check out our most-needed foods list!

Food donations can be dropped off at any one of our three locations during these special holiday dock hours:
