SPOKANE FOOD DISTRIBUTIONS AND WINTER NEWSLETTER – FEBRUARY 19
SPOKANE FOOD DISTRIBUTIONS
In response to the continued elevated need for food assistance in the Spokane community, Second Harvest will host two mass food distributions at the Spokane County Fairgrounds (404 N. Havana St. #1, Spokane Valley, WA 99212) this month to help fill service gaps and get food directly to people who need it. These distributions are intended to supplement the amazing efforts of our partner food pantries, who continue to work on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. The distributions will take place on Friday, Feb. 19 and Friday, Feb. 26, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., or while supplies last. For a full schedule of Second Harvest’s mobile distributions, click here.
Second Harvest’s winter newsletter is here! Look inside to read stories about Second Harvest’s amazing partners and volunteers, as well as stories of impact from the Mobile Market and last year’s Thanksgiving meal distributions. These stories are possible thanks to the dedicated volunteers and donors committed to ensuring everyone across the Inland Northwest has the food they need during this time. We are grateful to be part of such an abundantly generous community!

Steve and his wife both retired from the Army, and he also spent time as a civil engineer in the Navy. His career has been a life of service to our country. Today, he is a member of the civilian workforce at Fairchild Air Force Base.
With economics the way they are today, Steve accesses Second Harvest Mobile Market free food distributions on base.
Naturally cheery, Steve manages a smile even when he explains “Times are hard.” Simultaneously, he proudly adds, “We have two kids, 13 and 14. They eat like crazy and are growing like mad.”
Bite2Go is a weekend food program for students facing chronic food shortages at home. Bite2Go gives children access to a mix of nutritious, nonperishable and ready-to-eat meals and snacks for the weekend, helping kids return to school ready to learn on Mondays. At the heart of the program is the adoptive organization. Bite2Go relies on businesses, churches and civic groups to “adopt” a school, and through that engagement and funding model, provide students with food for the weekends through the school year.
