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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
neighborhoods where families are hungry and desperately need a helping hand.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
inspiring and committed.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
MY ROLE:Volunteer & I help distribute produce to low income households through Second Harvest's Produce Mobile Program.
