feeding hope: Alex’s story
With schools closed and all his siblings home each day, it’s been challenging for Alex’s family to afford enough food to keep everyone fed. Alex also was laid off from one of his two jobs, making it even more difficult to afford healthy food.
“Going to the market and buying food is too expensive. This will lessen the financial burden.”
But Alex didn’t just want to put food on the table for his family. He wanted it to be nutritious food, especially during the time of COVID-19. That’s why he was so excited about the fruit available at the Mobile Market. As he held up the bag of oranges he had just received, he said, “The vitamins—they keep you healthy.”

Martha learned the joy of service early in life. It’s a lesson the longtime educator has shared with her three children and students. But in the past year, she discovered a new outlet: serving as a Second Harvest core volunteer and member of the Kay Porta Legacy Society.
Today more than 150 adoptive organizations enable Second Harvest, in partnership with At The Core, to provide Bite2Go to nearly 8,500 elementary, middle and high school students in Spokane, the Tri-Cities and a growing list of rural communities.
