The Second Harvest Food Bank is a national network member of Feeding America. This collection of over 205 food banks and food rescue organizations nationwide get food to hungry children and families who need it most. Feeding America is the nation's largest non-governmental, domestic hunger relief organization.

With the donations received from community food drives, retail partnerships and the Feeding America network, the Food Bank works to target hunger through programs such as The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), Ohio Food Program (OFP), and Agricultural Clearance Program (ACP).
