Second Harvest Community Food Bank houses a team of extremely hard workers who are so passionate, not only about serving their community in need, but who also work tirelessly to achieve their goal of ending hunger in this area.

I can say enough good things about the organization and
efficiency of this company. Couple that with caring and generous hearts, and you have a great recipe for a thriving community food bank.

Our organization has partnered with the Backpack Buddies program (we donate dental kits to put in the backpacks), and what a great program this is. Many children in our schools would be going hungry on the weekends if it weren't for this program.

The only changes I would make would be for them to be able to hire more staff so they could have even more manpower to back up their goals!

Second Harvest Community Food Bank provides not only food to pantries, daycares, senior centers, etc. but is also a strong leader and advocate for eliminating hunger in our region. As a church leader I am indebted for their knowledge and expertise in care for those who use their services and the professional distribution network they oversee.
Our congregation and volunteers totally trust and support the work and partnership we have with Second Harvest Community Food Bank.

I first had contact with Second Harvest Food Bank several years ago as a member of Eastside Rotary, and since that time my respect for the organization has grown throughout the years. The new leadership is outstanding and has put Second Harvest on a path to eradicate hunger in St. Joseph. I can't say enough good things about the job they are doing.

I have worked with the Backpack Buddies Program through the Second Harvest Community Food Bank the past 4 years. Backpack Buddies provides elementary school children with nutritious food for the weekend every friday during the school year.
The Second Harvest staff is exceptional to work with
in this program. They all are very concerned about the "needy" children that the Backpack Buddies program provides for. The staff continues to strive to be able to provide more for the St. Joseph School District 750 students who receive the backpacks each friday. They/we would like to provide for more students to participate in this program and the Second Harvest staff works diligently in trying to come up with ways to promote funding for this program.
Second Harvest does so many wonderful things for our community and i really am "touched" by their focus on our elementary students not going "hungry" over the weekends during the school year.
We are so fortunate as a community and as a school district to have a local organization that strives to "reach out" to our community members that are in need.
Finally, the great rapport that Second Harvest has with the businesses in our community is exceptional - the St. Joseph community comes together when there are people in need and Second Harvest plays a vital role in providing avenues for those who are "hungry".

Hy-Vee has been partnered with Second Harvest since our store was built over 8 years ago. Through our donations to the Food Rescue Program and our employees' giving to many other of their valuable programs, it has been a very positive relationship. Second Harvest does so much good throughout the region that I cannot fathom NOT being partnered with them for many, many years to come.
If we weren't helping Second harvest then we wouldn't be a very good corporate citizen.------Brad McAnally

If Second harvest had a bigger facility, I think that would greatly expand their reach to people that need their help.

Second Harvest Community Food Bank in St. Joseph, MO is a charity that truly cares for the individuals and community they serve. Every dollar our company has donated to Second Harvest, is really an investment in our community and those they serve. The core group at Second Harvest has built a great foundation for the future. Their new director is bringing change, forward thinking and great new initiatives to take them into the next chapter. I look forward to continuing to work with the group at Second Harvest and encourage you do so so as well.

The positive results are evident in our community, there is more work to be done and they are working on it!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ensure that their services are easily accessible to those working full and part time. For instance, expanding the Harvest House hours. (Which I believe they are working on!)
