FEEDING AMERICA COVID-19 IMPACT REPORT – MARCH 19
FEEDING AMERICA COVID-19 IMPACT REPORT: “WHERE WE STAND ONE YEAR LATER”
This week, which marked one year since the COVID-19 crisis began in the U.S., Feeding America released a COVID-19 response report: “Where We Stand One Year Later.” The report reflects on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted hunger across the country and how the Feeding America network, which Second Harvest is proud to be a part of, responded to meet the elevated demand for food assistance.
The stories and statistics in this report come from across the U.S., but they feel familiar here at Second Harvest, as they echo the need we’ve seen throughout the Inland Northwest over the past 12 months. Many people in our region, like Dave, have sought food assistance for the first time after losing their income. “This has been so helpful,” he said about the food he received from a Second Harvest partner agency last summer. “It’s a godsend—an absolute godsend.”

Kids Summer Cooking Classes – Jun 2
So many life skills are learned in the kitchen — counting, following directions, teamwork, science, budgeting both time and money, problem-solving, creativity, and more! This is why Second Harvest is passionate about providing kids with the opportunity to build confidence in the kitchen. We’re excited to host two great kids cooking camps this summer in The Kitchen at Second Harvest.

Volunteers of America’s partnership with Second Harvest is an essential part of the services offered at their locations: Hope House, Hope House Apartments and The Marilee Apartments. While the Volunteers of America provide support through social services and case management, Second Harvest focuses on providing food that is distributed daily as meals and groceries to their clients.
