STOCKTON, CA – OmniTRAX, Inc. and its affiliate Stockton Terminal and Eastern Railroad are funding 100,000 meals to help Second Harvest Food Bank of Manteca serve California’s Central Valley while pledging volunteer employee support to help feed the hungry. OmniTRAX COO Gord Anutooshkin joined local representatives at the food bank’s office today to share the company’s commitment to the region.

“As California continues to wrestle with the economic and public health challenges that the pandemic has presented, food insecurity has become a serious problem and we are pleased to have the opportunity to team up with Second Harvest Food Bank to battle hunger in the greater San Joaquin area,” said OmniTRAX COO Gord Anutooshkin. “By lending our time and resources to existing local efforts, we can make a meaningful impact on those in need.”

Second Harvest Food Bank began as Good Samaritan Community Services in 1976 and later joined a national coalition of food banks known then as America’s Second Harvest, now known as Feeding America. A merger with the Modesto-Riverbank-Stanislaus County Food Bank formed today’s Second Harvest Food Bank of San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties to provide increased distribution of food to those in need in eight counties, including San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, and the Mother Lode.

“Food insecurity is a chronic problem that has strained our limited resources under these circumstances,” said name Second Harvest Food Bank Director of Development Jessica Vaughan. “We are thankful for this generous pledge to empower us to serve the Central Valley’s growing food need.”

The Stockton Terminal and Eastern Railroad (STE) provides rail freight service in the greater Stockton, California area. Running on 25 miles of track and connecting to the BNSF and Union Pacific Railroad, the ST&E Railroad supports the transportation needs of multiple industries. Customer Commodities shipped include agriculture, asphalt, cement, chemical transportation, food processing, lumber, steel, and many other industries that call Stockton home. The STE is located near the Port of Stockton making it a vital part of the nation’s supply chains.

“The pandemic’s economic impact has been felt on local jobs and businesses,” said San Joaquin County Board Supervisor Miguel Villapudua. “Support for those in need is critical and we are thankful for community partners like OmniTRAX that are willing to help our non-profits feed a growing community need.”
