NATIONAL AG DAY AND “YEAR IN THE BUBBLE” – MARCH 26
CELEBRATING NATIONAL AG DAY
Tuesday, March 23 was National Ag Day, and Second Harvest celebrated its many agriculture partners that help ensure everyone across the Inland Northwest has access to fresh produce and locally grown food. This year, National Ag Day felt particularly important, as more families struggle to afford fresh, nutritious food. Northwest Agricultural Consultants – Soil and Plant Lab of Kennewick is proudly sponsoring National Agriculture Month, including National Ag Day, this year at Second Harvest’s Pasco hunger solution center. You can watch KAPP-KVEW’s coverage of National Ag Day here. Thank you to Second Harvest’s wonderful agriculture partners for your commitment to ending hunger in our community!
“YEAR IN THE BUBBLE”: SECOND HARVEST’S COVID-19 CRISIS RESPONSE CONTINUES
KXLY in Spokane recently featured Second Harvest in its “Year in the Bubble” series, which takes a look at how the Spokane community has been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. Watch the video to learn more about Second Harvest’s response to the elevated need for food assistance in our community.
While the distribution of vaccines brings hope for an end to the pandemic, families will continue to feel the financial impacts of this crisis for months and years to come. If you’d like to help make sure everyone in our community has the food they need, you can sign up to volunteer or donate at 2-harvest.org. Second Harvest is immensely grateful to our many volunteers, donors and partners who have kept Second Harvest resilient over the last year.
