Leadership Statement:

Despite the economic challenges that gripped the nation and our two counties in fiscal year 2010, by working together we made progress in fighting local hunger. We have literally quantified the annual number of “missing meals” that keep us from having a well-fed local population where no child, senior or family would face a nutritional shortfall. Our strong financial results underscore the care that we take with every dollar that you entrust to us. In stewarding those dollars and utilizing them in a highly efficient way, we strive to leverage our resources for the benefit of the community. Charity Navigator has recognized our financial stability, operational efficiency and impact by awarding Second Harvest Food Bank a four-star rating, a feat attained by a small percentage of charities nationally. Thank you for all that you do to help us breathe life into our mission. The Food Bank's story is about people...people like you, who transform our vision of a hunger-free community into a meal, one person and one day at a time.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

September 2014)
?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Program Description:

Second Harvest Food Bank operates several programs. Our most significant program is to provide food to hundreds of local nonprofit agencies that serve low income populations. Agencies who receive regular food allocations from us include soup kitchens, pantries, shelters, afterschool programs, senior centers, rehabilitation programs and other wrap around programs for low income households. In addition, we have specific programs that provide low income households direct access to food on a regular basis. These are outlined below. Our weekly Brown Bag Program provides 25 pounds of groceries to an average of 12,604 low-income seniors and disabled persons (age 55+) each week at 85 different distribution sites. The program also provides seniors with a social outlet and sense of purpose since participants have the opportunity to volunteer on a regular basis. Several volunteers deliver food directly to homebound clients, which affords them the opportunity to confirm that participants are safe, healthy, and well. Our Family Harvest Program provides 100 pounds of food for an average of 12,086 low-income individuals each month at 40 distinct distribution sites. Recipients are low income families with minor dependent children. The Produce Mobile Program is a farmer's market on wheels that provides fresh fruits and vegetables to approximately 4,000 low income households each month at 26 distribution sites. Our new Mobile Pantry program provides 100 pounds of food to 263 low income households each month who face significant barriers to accessing food in neighborhoods where no pantries or food assistance programs exist. Our Partners in Need Program provides weekly bags of groceries to an average of 374 low-income individuals each month, who choose to volunteer their time at our Santa Clara County or San Mateo County distribution centers. Our Food Connection Hotline provides nearly 32,000 referrals annually to individuals seeking food assistance. Hotline operators provide referrals in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. Our staff Nutritionists provide more than 400 classes each year on topics such as healthy eating, food safety, menu planning and diet related health conditions. In order to provide food to the community, we had the help of an impressive volunteer force that provided 187,294 hours of service last year, which equates to 90 full time employees - this is more than we employ.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Second Harvest Food Bank is the primary source of donated, surplus, and purchased food for nonprofit agencies in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. Each month we serve nearly a quarter of a million people on average each month. The majority of people we serve are low-income families with children and seniors.   Last year we provided 55 million pounds of nutritious food to low-income people in need in every zip code of our service area from Daly City to Gilroy, and from the ocean to the bay. We are one of the largest food banks in the country: about the size of three supermarkets and unlike most stores, we deliver. We provide food efficiently through our direct service programs (see Food Bank Programs below) and by collaborating with a network of more than 330 community-based organizations at 770 different food distribution sites. Partner agencies include shelters, pantries, soup kitchens, children’s programs, senior meal sites, and residential programs. Last year volunteers contributed more than 316,000 hours of service valued at $6.6 million annually, more than doubling the size of our staff.
