While not explicitly a homeless charity, America's Second Harvest addresses some of the same concerns as do many homeless charities. In fact, Second Harvest's mission extends to all the hungry in the United States, aiming to create a hunger-free America.
Hunger in America is widespread, even if it does not look like the hunger we see in places like Africa or Afghanistan. Therefore, America's Second Harvest works to not only to distribute food, but also to increase public awareness of domestic hunger and advocate for policies that benefit America's hungry. The America's Second Harvest food bank network serves people in need in every county in the United States, securing and storing surplus food and distributing it through local service agencies.
