Fill the Barrel Community Food Drive


Help Us, Help Others. Fill the Barrel. Community Food Drive.

Take the challenge to “Stop Childhood Hunger” now in San Mateo County!

San Mateo County Library is supporting Second Harvest Food Bank on targeted dates throughout the summer by asking community residents to stop by their local library and help fill the barrel for one day in each of our eleven communities.

Although the reasons for hunger are complicated, feeding a family in need is not. Each year, Second Harvest Food Bank distributes more than 45.5 million pounds of nutritious food to low-income people in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. Many are children. The millions of pounds of food are provided free to 326 local nonprofit agencies at more than 700 sites, including pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and after-school programs.
