On March 4, 2021, Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County hosted their first-ever virtual Annual Awards Ceremony. The event celebrated the amazing contributions from the community making the 2020 Holiday Food and Fund Drive the most successful in the history of the food bank.
The extraordinary response from the community comes at a time when so many people have been significantly affected by the COVID pandemic. The economic impact has increased food assistance needs in the community, more than doubling the number of participants coming to food distributions.
Second Harvest Food Bank recognized Santa Cruz Community Credit Union for its work to support Second Harvest Food Bank throughout the year, as well as at its recent annual food drive. The Credit Union brought in a total of $28,931, which translates to 64,924 meals for those in need in our community.
We're honored to received this reward and wish to thank our Board, staff and members for the many contributions made. We look forward to continuing our support of the Second Harvest Food Bank in 2021.
