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!

The Bite2Go program rallies people from a diversity of backgrounds around the simple belief that no child should go hungry. Our donors and volunteers come from the business world, the faith community and a variety of civic groups and clubs; they range in age from 9 to 90.
As Nov. 11, Veterans Day, approaches, we’d like to take time to thank a special group — our veterans — and acknowledge the multiple ways they serve our program and our communities as they once served their nation.
Food insecurity. It is a term we so often hear, but many of us never really understand because we are lucky.
We have never skipped a meal because we can’t afford one or questioned when we will eat again. But it’s a reality for thousands of our neighbors.
They have to make impossible choices about whether to buy medication, pay rent, keep the power on, and put gas in the car — or buy food for the week.
And while I knew that people around me were making these choices every day, I never understood it until working with Second Harvest.
