I’ve had the opportunity and privilege of working with Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida (SHFB) for six years. I can still remember my interview with Erin and thinking how mammoth our warehouse was at the Brengle location. I was blown away with the food bank then and I continue to be amazed not only by what we do but what you our agencies do every day.
I have seen pantries grow from a few shelves to the size of classrooms. Stats increase from 20 families a month to over 200. It has been my greatest honor to assist you, our partner agencies, in that growth.
I feel so lucky to have worked with the best of the best in Central Florida! Every single person has had an effect on me; I can only hope that I have impacted you in a positive way. From the staff at SHFB (including Volusia and Brevard Branches) to every volunteer at our agencies, you have helped save a life from a few moments of pain and brought more than just a smile to their face, you have brought hope.
My last day at Second Harvest will be Friday, May 6, 2016. I wish you all the best and THANK YOU for always being vigilant about caring for vulnerable people in Central Florida.
