Help 2HJ Celebrate Japan’s First “Food Bank Day“

Second Harvest JapanNovember 23rd is the first annual “Food Bank Day” in Japan. This date was chosen because it is also “Labor Thanksgiving Day,” which was traditionally a day when neighbors would share with others in the post-war period. Going further back, it was a time to celebrate the annual harvest. Give thanks for labor and food is an apt way to celebrate food banking.

FEW Community Service Partner, Second Harvest Japan, kicked off a month-long campaign.

Second Harvest mentioned recently, “Better to light a candle than curse the darkness” Join them and vote for a society in which everyone has access to the food they need. Let’s light a candle on the table for those in need in Japan.

Here is how you can “vote”
1) Hold a food drive
Donated food will be delivered to needy households in time for the holidays

2) Donate funds
・Our goal is to raise funds by December 23rd to deliver 100,000 meals. We need to raise 3 million yen to accomplish this goal.
* Donations to our sister organization, Second Harvest Asia, are tax-deductible for US taxpayers (individuals and corporations)

3) Participate in our “Adopt a Family” program
Provide a family in need with care package of basic staples. We will include a postcard for the family to respond to you.
Contact: with Adopt a Family in the subject line for more information
