Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties
July 21, 2011
I have been an intern for Second Harvest Food Bank for two non consecutive years and a volunteer at the warehouse with my fellow members from Key Club (another non profit organization). Michelle Berg has been an excellent mentor for me in being able to actively participate in the food bank in any way I can. From researching for possible grants for the Food Bank to writing up blogs about the food bank, I can honestly say that my experience at the food bank has not only been welcoming but genuine. The people serving their time are sympathetic, kind, and responsible. I enjoy meeting the various employers because they always have a smile on their face.

Honestly, I haven't been exposed to anything that has made me upset or wanting to change anything about the food bank. I am just very pleased to be working with such an enthusiastic group of individuals and the passion for ending hunger is enlightened every time I walk through the doors. That passion should never ever stop!
