Distribution Coordinator (Former Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – August 29, 2017
People and companies would come to get food to provide help for churches, food pantries, etc. They would give us their orders, and we would fill the orders and the wrap up the pallets and load the trucks. The hardest part was the long hours, and the most enjoyable part was helping the people feed the communities.

Giving is the first thing you learn here. They are welcoming and make it feel like a family from day one. The company has a great way of connecting with the community and surrounding companies to help those needing nutrition and support. There are programs that teach people how to cook the food they are being given and how to grow their own food. This company is making great changes in our community!

You are sorted into groups and you are put to work sorting food, packaging food items, and throwing away unwanted food. The people that work there are dedicated to helping the less fortunate and are willing to help you.

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
