Second Harvest Asia (2HA) coordinated a training session for Food Bank Yamanashi (FBY) from Japan at St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance (SMFBA) in Phoenix, Arizona from February 1 to 10, 2012. We already reported about this visit, but recently FBY sent us an extensive report about the trip. 2HA translated the report into English to share it here.
We believe this will be a great material for those who want to experience “virtual tour” about food banking in the U.S. Enjoy!

Food Bank Yamanashi Report

We thank again SMFBA for giving us a wonderful training session and FBY for sharing the great report with the rest of the world.

Second Harvest Asia will develop the regional food bank network in Asia to share best practices and experiences with other food banks. We hold online meetings regularly with Asian food bank members. If you are interested in joining our regional network, please contact us at
