What you can do

The lifeblood of food bank activity

Helping as a volunteer

Utilize a vehicle and volunteer to pick up donations
then bring them to warehouses and welfare facilities.

Volunteer work involves picking up food donations using a Second Harvest Japan truck or
your own vehicle, and then bringing them to warehouses and welfare institutions.
This also includes assistance from logistics companies providing their own trucks.
Delivering these foods are not simply a project, but an essential lifeblood of food bank operations.
For those looking to contribute to a social cause by simply providing a vehicle,
please consider volunteering.

Support example

Corporation StraightRefrigerated food is delivered efficiently by professionals.

Refrigerated vehicles with the polar bear logo arrive and large quantities of yogurt are delivered. They provide this pro bono delivery service alongside their regular deliveries. They process our request the same day and deliver promptly. Thanks to their assistance we are able to handle more chilled food and get it to more people.

I joined 2HJ volunteer after my sons left home. I wanted to connect myself with the society. Currently, I deliver foods to 10 organizations. I enjoy little talks with these organization staffs and food utilizations. Volunteer works at 2HJ is my treasure.
