SOME OF OUR FAVORITE LOCAL STORIES.
Feeding hope: Cecelia’s story
But Cecelia’s budget looks a lot different during the COVID-19 pandemic. Her husband’s lawn care and handyman business used to support them. Now, they’re struggling to pay all the bills.
“It’ll help a lot, especially the oranges because I’m supposed to get one a day.”
Cecelia misses a lot about life before the pandemic, but she’s grateful for the ways the community has come together to support one another. “I just appreciate everything everyone is doing for everybody,” she said, pointing to the Mobile Market. “I just pray that it’s over soon.”
Bite2Go Volunteer Spotlight: John – May 12
The Bite2Go program is a collaboration of two Spokane nonprofits — Second Harvest and At The Core — and currently feeds nearly 10,000 kids from North Idaho to the east slope of the Cascades. The child hunger program matches up schools in need with adoptive organizations — churches, businesses and civic groups — that are able to fund the program.
Volunteers play a vital role when it comes time to transport Bite2Go kits from east central Spokane to some of the distant communities we serve; in some cases — Ellensburg, Chelan, George — the distance is well over 100 miles.
John Ammann is one of those volunteers who helps Bite2Go support kids across eastern and central Washington.
Community Partner Spotlight: Roy Lamb – May 5
Back in 1990, Roy Lamb, his dad and his brother built the first cooler and freezer in Second Harvest’s then brand-new warehouse. Today, Roy and the Lambco team are nearly finished with a major expansion of that cooler and freezer space – adding 3,025 square feet to our existing 13,000 square feet.
