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!

You may be familiar with the hustle and bustle of Black Friday and Cyber Monday — those days when the focus often turns to shopping and bargains. However, there’s another day on the calendar that embodies the true spirit of the season, and one that we truly celebrate: Giving Tuesday. It just happened and is a day when people from all walks of life come together to give back. This year, it made a profound impact on our community, especially for people facing hunger.
We are grateful to Idaho Central Credit Union (ICCU) for their generosity. For the second year in a row, they extended support with an extraordinary $15,000 matching gift, inspiring people like you to pause the purchasing and press play on impact.
As we reflect on this year’s turkey drives, we want to share our gratitude. A community of volunteers, food pantries, agriculture partners and donors joined hands to distribute 6,800 Thanksgiving meals to neighbors in need in Spokane, the Mid-Columbia and Yakima Valley. To each of you, we say thank you.
Thanksgiving, known for bringing together cherished ones over a festive meal, embodies not only the joy of togetherness but also serves as an occasion to express and spread gratitude. As we reflect on gratitude, we at Second Harvest want to send heartfelt thanks to the pantries and meal programs that tirelessly serve our communities.
