Second Harvest of the Big Bend (SHBB) is a nonprofit charity started in 1982 to address the urgent problem of hunger in the community. The food bank's mission is to meet the short-term nutritional needs of the 125,300 hungry, food insecure people, including 29,000 children, and lead the community in the fight to end hunger.

Because people often have to make difficult choices between feeding themselves and their families, and paying for other necessities, no-cost food assistance can lift a big weight from their shoulders. Thanks to SHBB, clients can utilize income to pay for other expenses, such as medicines, school expenses for children, rent and utilities. This helps them to save money, increase assets and strengthen resiliency.
