Become a Member Agency

Second Harvest Food Bank welcomes the opportunity to expand our network of member agencies. In order to apply for membership, organizations must meet the following guidelines:

  • The agency must have a charitable program that serves low-income people and it must provide food as part of that program.
  • The majority (51% or more) of the agency's participants must be within federal income guidelines.
  • The agency must be a non-profit agency holding a 501(c)(3) designation, or be a church as defined by the Internal Revenue Service.  The agency may not be a private foundation.
  • The agency must agree to follow Second Harvest guidelines for record keeping, sanitation, and safe food storage.

The mission of Second Harvest is to feed people in need.  We welcome to our network any organization that meets these guidelines.

 

Second Harvest member agencies fall into two general categories: emergency food providers (EFP) and non-emergency food providers.  Emergency food providers serve the most food-insecure populations – people who can not be sure when or from where their next meal is coming. Current EFPs include emergency pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens.  Participants served by EFPs must meet federal income guidelines.

 

The remaining member agencies, the non-emergency food providers, include daycare centers serving low-income families, residential rehabilitation programs, and after-school programs.
