FOOD DELIVERY SERVICE RECAP AND VOICES OF HOPE – FEBRUARY 12
SPOKANE COUNTY FOOD DELIVERY SERVICE RECAP
The ZoNE, one of the many community partners that came together to deliver food to the homes of people in need this past December, recently shared a recap of the program’s impact, including a moving video in which a resident in Northeast Spokane shared the difference the food has made for her and her family during the pandemic. You can also watch this video, by Rising River Media, which gives you a closer look at the program’s origins and impact in the Spokane community. Second Harvest was proud to partner with The ZoNE, Special Mobility Services, SNAP, CHAS, local Community Health Workers and several other partners to provide this service.
VOICE OF HOPE
Allen, pictured below, was one of the many veterans who attended Second Harvest’s Mobile Market distribution at the North Idaho VA Clinic on February 5. Allen served in the Air Force for four years (1955-1959) and enjoyed his time being stationed in San Diego. He comes to the North Idaho VA Clinic in Coeur d’Alene a few times a year for checkups and is deeply appreciative of the support he has gotten since serving in the military. This was Allen’s first time attending a Second Harvest Mobile Market event, and he said he is grateful for another great resource being provided to the veterans in Idaho!
