Reltio for Good @Second Harvest Food Bank

We've been growing rapidly and have so many new faces joining Reltio over the last few months. Our Redwood Shores, CA office in particular has seen additions across the board in finance, product management, engineering, services, sales and more.

One of our new PMs Naveen Gupta (thanks again Naveen!) organized a team outing to the Second Harvest Food Bank in San Carlos.

As you may have gathered, this particular blog post has nothing to do with modern data management, data-driven apps or any other form of technology. It's just a post about teamwork, collaboration and supporting in a small way for a day our local community and the great work that organizations like Second Harvest do.

Our team of 16 participated in putting together boxes of canned goods, and a mixture of non-perishables which we sealed and put on pallets for delivery. Together with another company who were also there for the afternoon, we were able to pack what must have been over 800 to 1000 boxes. Each box had to weigh around 15lbs for the first run, then 28lbs for the next.

It was a challenge getting the boxes to weigh just right at the start, but we soon got the hang of it. Our founder and CEO Manish Sood in fact got a record eight x 28lb boxes correctly weighed on the scale in a row!

We had a great time together and we will definitely be returning to support Second Harvest again in the future. Please check out the video, and do support your local community food drive this holiday. They need everyone to have a "CAN" do attitude.
