SPOKANE FOOD DISTRIBUTION AND GONZAGA PREP FOOD DRIVE – FEBRUARY 26
SPOKANE FOOD DISTRIBUTION
In response to the continued elevated need for food assistance in the Spokane community, Second Harvest will host a mass food distribution at the Spokane County Fairgrounds (404 N. Havana St. #1, Spokane Valley, WA 99212) today, Friday, Feb. 26, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., or while supplies last. Large distributions like this one 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.

GONZAGA PREP FOOD DRIVE
Food drives look a little different during the COVID-19 pandemic, but that didn’t stop students at Gonzaga Preparatory School in Spokane from hosting their annual food drive—a point of pride for the student body there. In fact, the spike in need for food assistance in their community motivated an even greater response than ever. Together, students collected 100,000 pounds of food for their neighbors in need—10,000 of which were donated to Second Harvest (the rest were distributed directly to community members for the holiday season by Gonzaga Prep students and staff). In addition to their food donation, the students made a generous gift of nearly $20,000 to help ensure people in need can access healthy food this winter. The school also hosts a weekly food distribution with food provided by Second Harvest on Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:30. You can read more about the food drive and donation here. Thank you, Gonzaga Prep, for your commitment to making sure everyone in our community has the food they need!
