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!
