Apply Here

The goal of our Distribution Center Training program is to change lives by providing qualified, at-risk and economically disadvantaged adults with the warehouse experience and life skills training necessary to work with competence and professionalism in the food industry for a sustainable and successful career.

Students enrolled in the program gain valuable “hands-on” experience learning in our live operation warehouse. They will be immersed in all aspects of warehouse operations including: Safety, Inventory, Housekeeping, Receiving, Shipping and Process Flow. The life skills component of our program prepares students for work- readiness, focusing on the importance of appropriate work behaviors, resumes and interviewing techniques, as well as household budgeting, stress relief, and time management.

Our 14 week program is provided at no charge and designed to assist our students with barriers that would prevent them from achieving success while enrolled, such as lack of food, housing, transportation, childcare, and medical and mental health needs.

The curriculum will be covering the basic functions and equipment skills needed to successfully obtain an entry-level position in any food distribution or warehouse facility across the country. While enrolled, students experience every aspect of the warehouse, from product movement and storage to inventory and cost controls.

Facility and Location: The Second Harvest Distribution Center Training Program is located within the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida building, located at 411 Mercy Drive in Orlando, at the intersection of Mercy Drive and Old Winter Garden Road.  Our teaching facilities include a state of the art fully equipped, multi-temperature warehouse, as well as a classroom for life skills development.
