Become a Volunteer Liaison!

This is a fantastic opportunity for charismatic and engaging individuals to become an ambassador for Second Harvest at our location in North San Jose (Cypress Center) when volunteers arrive to sort food. You will provide vital information about hunger in wealthy Silicon Valley and what Second Harvest is doing about the issue.
