If you have been in the Orlando warehouse lately then you know we have blocked off the area that once held our freezers and coolers, there’s a good reason for it! We are in the process of adding a brand new cooler/freezer unit. This will create a smoother more efficient shopping experience, our warehouse staff will be able to restock the coolers and freezer from the back. Our hope is that with this improvement we will be able to offer our agencies larger quantity and selection of healthy foods. Keep an eye out for the grand unveiling of our new cooler/freezer unit!!

Last Thursday partners from across the 5 county network gathered to learn and connect at our second annual Partner Network Conference. We had over 200 attendees engage in workshops, network together, and learn side by side. It was such a unique experience to have all 5 counties under one roof. We got to hear agencies share ideas and best practices. If you missed it, we will be uploading the speaker PowerPoint’s on the conference tab! For now enjoy a glimpse into our day, by clicking the link below.
When you are at the Orlando Warehouse and there is something you need help with, you are in a jam, or you just need a hug, who do you think of?
We have an answer for you! Ricardo Robledo!
Here at Second Harvest, Ricardo is our “go to guy”, he is the Second Harvest Warehouse manager. A typical day at work includes overseeing the drivers, warehouse staff, making sure mobile drops are sent out on time, TEFAP, the agency mart, and deliveries. He’s been a part of what we do at Second Harvest for 22 years, and in that time has a made a tremendous impact on the agencies and staff he has worked with.
I got the chance to ask some of the agencies about Ricardo and what I repeatedly heard was that he’s always willing to go the extra mile, take the extra time, and put in the extra work to help the agencies feed more people in their communities.
When asked what his favorite part of the job was, he said “All the agencies that come through the doors of our warehouse are special, they each help the community in unique ways, and getting to be a part of that is what keeps me excited about coming to work every day.”
