NORTH IDAHO HUNGER RELIEF FUNDING
We are grateful to announce that Governor Brad Little’s Coronavirus Financial Advisory Committee approved additional funds to support community food banks, including Second Harvest, during the current public health and economic crisis. This funding is restricted to responding to the increased need for food assistance in Idaho and will exclusively support Second Harvest’s food distribution in Boundary, Bonner, Kootenai, Benewah and Shoshone counties. Our friends at the Idaho Foodbank also received funding to support their hunger-relief efforts throughout the rest of the state. Allocated funds will help cover food purchases along with transportation and distribution expenses needed to get food to people facing hunger. For more information about this recent funding allocation, read more here or here.

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.
