Project Isaiah Food Drive

Join us in helping Second Harvest of Silicon Valley respond to a record level of local food insecurity. Together, we can ensure that those relying on the food bank every month receive the groceries they need.

Your gift provides a nutritious mix of fresh produce, protein and pantry items so that local families can enjoy delicious, comforting meals together. Every $1 provides enough food for 2 meals.

Help ensure our most vulnerable neighbors have uninterrupted access to nutritious food during and after this pandemic.

Since the COVID crisis began, Second Harvest of Silicon Valley has experienced double the requests for assistance. Your financial contributions are needed!
If you are able, please make a monetary donation to Beth David’s Project Isaiah food drive through Second Harvest of Silicon Valley

Second Harvest of Silicon Valley’s buying power and use of volunteer workers allows them to deliver two nutritious meals for every dollar donated. For many donors, donations will be tax-deductible and/or qualify for matching donations from their employers.

When the Rabbis speak about Tzedakah, they use phrases such as “your brother.”  They do so as a reminder that those in need must be treated as family members rather than as people who are wholly other.

In Judaism there is no such thing as “those people,” for we all are G-d’s children.

We live in an extremely wealthy area, but many can’t meet basic needs such as food, housing and clothing.  Seeing one’s children hungry is painful.

HUNGER HURTS

LET’S HEED ISAIAH’S CALL.  PLEASE make your generous donation to Second Harvest by Kol Nidre/Yom Kippur.

Together, we can fulfill a mitzvah and make a huge difference in our community.  Second Harvest of Silicon Valley provides food to needy people in our community. Most are families with dependent children or seniors on fixed incomes.  This service is about more than sustenance.  It is about delivering dignity and healthful foods.  Second Harvest of Silicon Valley is careful with its resources to help people maintain their health.

Let’s give money so Second Harvest of Silicon Valley can buy lots of good food at their discount rate

“THIS IS MY CHOSEN FAST…SHARE YOUR BREAD WITH THE HUNGRY, TAKE THE HOMELESS INTO YOUR HOME.  CLOTHE THE NAKED WHEN YOU SEE HIM, DO NOT TURN FROM PEOPLE IN NEED.”
