On April 5, 2013, JobTrain was honored as the Outstanding Nutritional Partner by Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, at their annual 2013 Agency Conference—“Harvest of Knowledge.” 

Approximately 300 attendees celebrated this remarkable event at the Oracle campus in Redwood City. Director of Administrative Services Eric Forgaard, accepted the award on behalf of JobTrain. Second Harvest Food Bank presented the award to JobTrain, because we consistently benefit from the outstanding and nutritious food generously supplied by SHFB. 

JobTrain’s Youth Culinary Arts class and CDC (Child Development Center) are the proud beneficiaries of such in-kind donations. 

Our Culinary Arts students use the food to prepare delicious in-class meals. And our adorable preschoolers and their families, appreciate knowing that our little ones are receiving healthy juice boxes, fruit, wholesome snacks and breakfast items to help nourish their bodies and jumpstart their days. In addition to providing food, Second Harvest Food Bank leads nutritional training courses for our culinary classes and for our child development teachers. 

Please join us in celebrating this terrific honor and thanking Second Harvest Food Bank for recognizing JobTrain!
