Staff Feature: Cassie Poser
Cassie Poser, Second Harvest Heartland’s food sourcing administrative coordinator, works with departments across the organization and with other Feeding America food banks to coordinate delivery, inventory and distribution of produce and other donated product.
In her role, Cassie handles produce year round, but says that her job gets especially busy during the summer. Since Cassie began working at Second Harvest Heartland in 2013, she has helped increase produce donations, improve the variety of produce and significantly decrease waste.
Managing produce takes a lot of effort and coordination. Thanks to the hard work done before the produce leaves Second Harvest Heartland, the quality has never been better.
“The agencies and service reps get a lot of comments about how good the produce looks and how fresh it is,” Cassie said. “I think all of the moving pieces and everyone working together has really helped that.”
