Review for Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I help at one of the Food Bank's Produce Mobile sites in San Mateo County. I had one elderly woman come up to me after getting her produce; she hugged me looked deeply into my eyes and said, “god bless you”. The people who come through our lines express deep gratitude for the produce they receive. One of our volunteers shared that he needed food for his family once, and was so grateful for the help he received that he wanted to give back. He has become one of our regular volunteers, who not only helps, but does so with such warmth, and dedication. For myself, I feel honored to work alongside these volunteers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

inspiring and committed.
