Each year, Chaboya is proud to support the Second Harvest Food Bank, whose mission is to provide food for people in need in our community. Chaboya brings in several Second Harvest Food Bank barrels which are placed throughout the school for families and students to place canned food donations. Watch the school website for participation dates.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties is the trusted leader dedicated to ending local hunger. Since its inception in 1974, Second Harvest has become one of the largest food banks in the nation, providing food to an average of nearly one quarter of a million people each month. Nearly half of the food distributed is fresh produce. Second Harvest also plays a leading role in promoting federal nutrition programs and educating families on how to make healthier food choices.
