Second Harvest’s Mobile Market team has been working hard during this time to get food to people who need it throughout the region. Hear from Todd, one of our Mobile Market drivers, about his experience facilitating these distributions during the COVID-19 pandemic in this video

This week marked the fifth Mobile Market free food distribution at the Toyota Center in Kennewick. Thursday’s event, shown in this video, served 700 families. We’re grateful for the Toyota Center team and inspired by their partnership to address hunger in the community during this time. 


Volunteers are needed to support Second Harvest’s drive-thru Mobile Market distribution at the Spokane County Fair & Expo Center on June 19 from 3 to 7 p.m. Please wear a mask to comply with CDC recommendations. If you’d like to volunteer for this event, please sign up here. Contact Gage at or 509-252-6243 with questions. 


Second Harvest supporter Lance Harpe ran 100 miles to fight hunger in the Tri-Cities on May 29. When the 100-mile race he had been training for was canceled, he decided to run to raise money for Second Harvest instead. “I would like to do something good with my training! To help support the community, I’m going to run 100 miles in Cherry Hill Estates starting at 8 a.m. on Friday, May 29, and lasting for approximately 24 hours. This is an effort to raise funds for Second Harvest Tri-Cities,” he said. Thank you, Lance, for your incredible commitment to getting food to people who need it in your community! Lance has extended his fundraiser through Saturday. To donate in support of Lance or learn more about his race, click here


“I want to thank you guys from the bottom of my heart. Today, Second Harvest came through Post Falls doing a food drive. My family is grateful! My husband was laid off for two months, and with the kiddos out of school, we’ve been struggling. Today I know that my kids will be fed, and I don’t have to wake up stressed because now we can have fun as a family making meals together for the next couple of weeks. Thank you so much.” -Ana, Post Falls
