Our Starting Line-Up

You know this has been a busy year at Second Harvest…  a new building, more activity, lots of excitement. YES! We are growing and have added experienced staff to help us grow into the future. We thought we’d introduce you to those staff members who are new to our starting line-up this year and long-time staff members who received well-deserved promotions to help us navigate our growth:

Welcome our New Staff:

Tami, who is from Norwalk, loves all outdoor activities like camping and gardening, especially those she can share with her three boys.
  • Katy Andrijowych, Program & Education Coordinator: Katy joined us in December to work directly with our partner charities for training and compliance. She organizes our many programs, publishes the monthly Soup to Nuts newsletter and is busy now putting together this year’s Farmer’s Markets.
