Food for Today. Food for the Future.

Second Harvest Strategic Plan

This plan represents year #5 of our five-year VISION 2020 view.

Three strategic areas of focus are:

  • FEED How we will provide access to millions of additional meals
  • LEAD How and where we will provide leadership in the fight against hunger
  • STRENGTHEN How we will continue to strengthen our Partner Agency Network

Our efforts are designed to close the meal gap by providing an additional 18,000,000 meals per year by 2020. For year #5, Fiscal Year 2019/2020, this translates into a 2% increase resulting in a total of 58,000,000 meals annually or 73,000,000 pounds annually.

Second Harvest’s Strategic Plan is created through a joint effort of the Board of Directors and senior management and is developed over a period of months in advance of the inception date for the new plan. The Strategic Plan is measured by the progress made in accomplishing the established goals. The progress is discussed at each of the monthly Board of Directors meetings.

Key Points of this Plan

Feeding the Line & Shortening the Line of People in Need of Food:
It’s critical to provide “food for today” to children, working people, families and seniors. They all need nutrition to get through the day and remain as healthy as possible, alert for school and strong enough to enjoy life.

We will also continue to provide “food for tomorrow” by training and job placement of individuals. Employment and a career path will help break the cycle of poverty. Once placed into jobs, these individuals can then provide the food for themselves and/or their families during their careers.
Food: We will continue building on our core competency of food distribution in terms of:
-    increasing the amount of food we provide
-    increasing the volume of nutritional foods

Reconnect food and health: Continue our momentum in leading community conversations and planning on the topic of collaboration between the healthcare industry and Second Harvest’s mission. 

Srengthening our Partner Agency Network: Continue building on last year’s success in providing capital as well as training and networking opportunities.

Amplify the voices of those experiencing hunger: Continue to bring public awareness to the people that are food insecure and to tell their stories.
