I have never worked with a non-profit like Second Harvest before. They truly care about the community and it's needs. Our families receive so much help from Second Harvest. Their employees are exceptionally helpful and good-hearted.
This nonprofit is so amazing and inspiring! Food is a right not a privilege and the work they do to help feed the community with nutritious sustenance is awe-inspiring!
I cannot say enough great things about Second Harvest Food Bank! The staff is extremely friendly, the food they supply to clients is fresh and nutritious, and they truly make each dollar count. The volunteer opportunities are great team-building events for groups and they make you feel like your efforts are truly valuable. The food bank also works hard to create partnerships throughout the community and engage every stakeholder in an attempt to not only provide food for every person who needs it but to create systemic change.
Second Harvest is a model that other food banks across the country should be looking to emulate in terms of food quality, efficiency of distribution and general customer service to the public.
i have volunteered sorting food or running food drives for the past 11 years, and enjoyed my experience with Second harvest food bank. Then this year I was even more blessed to have the opportunity to work within the organization for 9 months supporting the community relations and events department. I saw that their employee's truly love what they do by helping the community and people in need. they are always looking to spread the word to help others and it's contagious. What a great organization to have in our area.
Second Harvest Food Bank came to my attention a few years ago. I am continually in awe of their mission, how incredibly hard they work, and how effectively they produce results. Second Harvest feeds large numbers of people - adults and children - who have nowhere else to go, and those numbers are growing substantially every year. Second Harvest gives people more than food; they give them a leg up, hope, and a way to climb out of an impossible life situation- not enough to eat.
Second Harvest Food Bank has a well-deserved reputation as one of the most effective organizations in feeding the hungry in Silicon Valley. Its operations are efficient, and one of my husband's and my criteria for donation involves the percentage of money donated that actually goes to HELP people, as opposed to being gobbled up by administrative costs.
I hope Second Harvest continues to be funded for a very long time. If it weren't here, many people who need assistance would not be able to get it.
