Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – July 16, 2017

VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – June 29, 2017
SHFB is a great organization that serves a community that is very much so in need. My position was not long term and the team knew this. If they had extended more interest in making me long term, I might be more interested in staying. Maybe just invite me to a staff meeting or 2.
They paid me well and my time off was flexible- though unpaid.

Great volunteer opportunity for San Jose residents. The branch is huge and can always use more volunteers on a daily basis. There is a great deal of contentness when you can help others less fortunate and the Second Harvest gives that feeling.
I learned alot while there and the people where helpful
Stocker (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, NC – June 9, 2017
It was a good place to learn new task. The people there were very nice and willing to help you learn. It could be fun when working with others. I worked there while in school. We would go and assist the staff in what ever they needed. I was able to learn how to do many different task. And learn the right way to do them. The staff likes us being they,so they were able to teach of many things.

Volunteer Service/Donations driver (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – March 3, 2017
Depending on your skill level and knowledge of the inner workings of the food bank determines what you will face every day. You could start as a driver in the mornings then when done with your route you might end up in the warehouse doing inventory or moving collected food with forklifts. Because of my skill set and my reliability I never had a dull moment. I learned how to function in a massive and complicated dynamic group. The management is some of the best I have ever worked for. Second harvest strives to keep healthy food available for the 1 out of 10 people who can't afford to buy healthy food for their family's. With so many shifts and moving parts in the building, It made it hard to communicate which caused confusion. Sometimes a project that you had worked on all day would be undone at night. I have never felt that level of accomplishment.
Volunteer Worker (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – February 6, 2017
I was volunteering at the Second Harvest Food Bank; mostly unloading items from various store outlets onto a conveyor belt to be distributed by item type. Other times it was unloading straight from the plastic wrap to be put into boxes that would distribute through out the city of New Orleans.
