Welcome to the UCSC Holiday Food Drive
Working in cooperation with Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Cruz, we help provide healthy meals to the members of our community who sometimes struggle to put meals on the table.
What we know.
Here in one of the most productive agricultural parts of the country, one in four children in our community go without enough meals. We know that children who go hungry can face more challenges developmentally. We know that the people who are in most need of calories tend to get the lowest quality ones available. This can lead to obesity and type two diabetes. Hunger is a challenge that faces and affects all of us. The UCSC holiday Food Drive Team is dedicated to making a difference in our community by helping to provide healthy meals to our neighbors in need.
