What We Do

The mission of Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina (SHMETROLINA) is twofold; first, to feed hungry people by soliciting and distributing food and other household products through partner agencies; and second, to educate people in the community about the nature of and solutions to the problems of hunger. In 2017-2018 Second Harvest provided almost 55 million pounds of food and grocery items through a network of over 700 non-profit partner agencies including emergency pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, veterans services agencies, and animal shelters. We are changing the world by providing healthy, nutritious food for people who would otherwise go hungry.
