One Dollar = Seven Pounds of Food

Give Money


One of the best ways to help end hunger in the Metrolina area is through a financial gift to Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. Because the Food Bank supplies food and essential grocery items to over 700 agencies feeding hungry people in 19 counties, a donation to the Food Bank helps all of these organizations. In Fiscal Year 2016-2017, we distributed over 54 million pounds to these organizations and to other food banks.


While most of the food we distribute is donated, we have costs to transport and receive it, keep proper records, conduct appropriate inspections to ensure food safety, and to sort and prepare the food for sharing with our partner agencies. Financial donations help to cover these costs. For every $1 we receive, we distribute 7 pounds of food. Overhead and administration represent only 2.7% of our total budget. Since the Food Bank is a tax exempt charity [501(c)(3)], all contributions are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
