I am a youth minister and I took a group of teens from my church to volunteer at Second Harvest. It was a great way for them to see first-hand the need that exists in our community. They could not believe how much food was in the Second Harvest warehouse. It was very impressive to the students that all the food they saw stacked to the ceiling and all the food they were sorting that had been donated, was still not enough to meet the needs of the hungry in our community! The coordinator who worked with us gave good instructions to the teens and answered all our questions. It was an incredibly positive experience and our youth learned so much about the world around them by working with Second Harvest. We will be back to help in the future!
