Our relationship with Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Cruz County goes back to 1997 when we participated in the annual food drive for the first time. Over the past 14 years, we've donated the equivalent of 2.5 million pounds of food for local families in need.
Our 2011 Second Harvest Holiday Food Drive resulted in raising funds which bought 402,078 pounds of food. More than 536,000 meals were provided to local families.
Each week, employees volunteer their time during lunch to distribute food to those in need via the Meals on Wheels program.
