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.”

Bite2Go Volunteer Spotlight: John – May 12
The Bite2Go program is a collaboration of two Spokane nonprofits — Second Harvest and At The Core — and currently feeds nearly 10,000 kids from North Idaho to the east slope of the Cascades. The child hunger program matches up schools in need with adoptive organizations — churches, businesses and civic groups — that are able to fund the program.
Volunteers play a vital role when it comes time to transport Bite2Go kits from east central Spokane to some of the distant communities we serve; in some cases — Ellensburg, Chelan, George — the distance is well over 100 miles.
John Ammann is one of those volunteers who helps Bite2Go support kids across eastern and central Washington.
Community Partner Spotlight: Roy Lamb – May 5
Back in 1990, Roy Lamb, his dad and his brother built the first cooler and freezer in Second Harvest’s then brand-new warehouse. Today, Roy and the Lambco team are nearly finished with a major expansion of that cooler and freezer space – adding 3,025 square feet to our existing 13,000 square feet.
