What is Second Helpings?

At Second Helpings, transforms lives through the power of food. They rescue prepared and perishable food, prepare it into nutritious meals and distribute those meals to more than 70 social services organizations that feed hungry people. The meals are delivered to shelters, community centers and afterschool programs to those who may not always have access to a warm, nutritious meal. We also use rescued food to train disadvantaged adults for careers in the culinary field, helping to eliminate hunger at its source. Graduates of the culinary job training program learn practical skills for meaningful jobs in food service, and they also receive training to help them be more successful, including resume writing, job interviewing and stress management.

In 2012, Second Helpings collected our 17 millionth pound of food and delivered their 6 millionth meal to their partner agencies. More than 500 adults have graduated from the Second Helpings culinary job training program.
