ServiceNow has committed to a $1.5 million global impact fund grant to
Second Harvest over three years. The grant will support Second Harvest’s
mission in raising awareness of the urgent issue of student hunger. The
partnership will help students and their families with access to
nutritious food free of charge at nine colleges in Santa Clara County.

“In Silicon Valley, one in four people is at risk of hunger, including
many young people struggling to complete their college education,” said
John Donahoe, President and CEO of ServiceNow. “We know that college
students who are food insecure face a tougher road to successful degree
completion. Finding their next meal shouldn’t be one of the worries
facing students. In partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, we’re
striving to address this basic need and help students and their families
focus on what matters most — getting an education and creating a better

Second Harvest has food pantries at every community college in Santa
Clara and San Mateo counties, as well as two private colleges. Through
this partnership, ServiceNow will be supporting Second Harvest’s Santa
Clara County pantries at Cogswell Polytechnical College, DeAnza College,
Evergreen Valley College, Foothill College, Gavilan College, Mission
College Santa Clara, San Jose City College, West Valley College, and San
Jose State University.

“Hunger in Silicon Valley is often invisible, and it is especially true
for many college and university students who are working hard in pursuit
of their future,” said Leslie Bacho, CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank.
“More students are having to afford college on their own and find
themselves juggling multiple jobs to meet their basic needs. Our college
pantries help them focus on their studies instead of worrying about
where their next meal is coming from. The commitment from ServiceNow to
raise awareness of students struggling with hunger is an innovative way
to help us expand our reach with the colleges and universities in Santa
Clara County and get more food into the hands of the students who need
it most.”
