New Beginnings for the Grays

Author: Agency Relations & Programs Team

After over 9 years of dedicated service, Erin Gray has left Second Harvest Food Bank. Many of you remember Erin as an Agency Relations Coordinator, Manager and your biggest cheerleader. Erin gave so much of herself to this mission and we will really miss her passion, infectious smile and joyful laugh. The Agency Relations Team as well as the Second Harvest Family are very grateful for Erin’s leadership, passion for this organization and her support for not only staff but for the Partner Agencies.

Erin and her husband Todd recently brought 2 beautiful children to Florida from out-of-state as foster, and soon to be adoptive parents. They have become amazing parents to 5 Year Old Autumn and 4 Year Old Jayden. This has been a dream come true for the Grays as they always wanted to start a family.

Erin Gray started at Second Harvest in 2008 as an Agency Relation’s Coordinator, and became the Agency Relations Manager in 2009. She instantly fell in love with the Second Harvest’s mission and vision and was thrilled to be part of the Second Harvest family.

On the Move With Chef Terah

Author: Agency Relations & Programs Team

On a weekly basis, you can find Chef Terah Barrios, Nutrition Educator at Second Harvest, at one of our many partner feeding programs. Chef Terah takes nutrition and cooking education out to the community where hungry families are being served.

What kind of work are you doing with the partner feeding programs?
I get the opportunity to work with families, single adults, seniors and just about anyone who is served through our partner feeding programs. I take nutrition and cooking education to clients while food is being distributed in their communities. I often share recipes utilizing fresh produce or items that Second Harvest has in abundance. Along with the recipe, I give clients a sample that they can taste.

Many of the clients served have diet-related health issues, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity. For this reason, I also share diet-related health information. I get to personally speak with many individuals while they wait for food. I hear their stories, their challenges and even their successes as many of them are returning for food.
