Our community has people going hungry all year long, not just at Christmas!  Feeding kids during summer months can be a worry to some families.  Please consider bringing a donation of canned food when you attend Hot San Jose Nights this year.  It will make you feel good that you are doing something that might seem so simple for many of us but can make a real difference to a family in need!  Look for our Second Harvest Food Bank barrels at the entry point and lets fill them up!  For anyone who would rather make a cash donation online you may click here for the link.  On behalf of Second Harvest Food Bank we thank you!

Best of the Bay Honorees!

Every year at Hot San Jose Nights we like to honor outstanding citizens or organizations who selflessly give back to our community.  We are pleased to announce this year's recipients in no particular order! To learn more about our Honorees, click here!
