Our Food Pantry is supplied by the Second Harvest Food Bank, local grocery stores, bakeries, and community donations. The Pantry is staffed primarily by volunteers who pick up more than 400,000 pounds annually of bread, fresh vegetables, dairy and other items from local stores. They also bag and distribute more than $600,000 worth of food to more than 2,000 individuals every year. Families and individuals can visit the pantry every week to get fresh food such as bread, vegetables and dairy products, and every other week for staples such as rice, beans, canned and dried goods. We also try to provide special needs food such as baby food, ethnic food, or items for people with nutritional restrictions.

As temperatures rise, we all enjoy cranking the AC when we sit in our cars or walk in the front door. Imagine not having that luxury and sitting outside, because you have no home, when it hits 96 degrees. Santa Clara County OES works with local nonprofits to ensure those most vulnerable have a everyone has a cool place to relax.
