Thank you, Governor Inslee, for including Second Harvest during your time in Spokane!
Second Harvest will host a drive-thru distribution at the Spokane County Fairgrounds (404 N. Havana St. #1, Spokane Valley, WA) on Thursday, April 29, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., or as supplies last.

The ZoNE, one of Second Harvest’s partners, recently published a blog post about the work they do to help ensure immigrant and refugee neighbors in Northeast Spokane can access nutritious food. Relationships built on trust are central to their model, and Second Harvest is a committed partner in this work. Thank you to The ZoNe, Community Health Workers, and other partners for your important contributions to this effort! Second Harvest is proud to be part of such a generous, connected community and continues to work to provide food equitably throughout our service territory.

Happy holidays from The Kitchen at Second Harvest! ‘Tis the season for doing what we love best — cooking for loved ones. Here are a few tips, tricks and recipe ideas to give your holiday dishes a deliciously healthy twist.
You may be familiar with the hustle and bustle of Black Friday and Cyber Monday — those days when the focus often turns to shopping and bargains. However, there’s another day on the calendar that embodies the true spirit of the season, and one that we truly celebrate: Giving Tuesday. It just happened and is a day when people from all walks of life come together to give back. This year, it made a profound impact on our community, especially for people facing hunger.
We are grateful to Idaho Central Credit Union (ICCU) for their generosity. For the second year in a row, they extended support with an extraordinary $15,000 matching gift, inspiring people like you to pause the purchasing and press play on impact.
As we reflect on this year’s turkey drives, we want to share our gratitude. A community of volunteers, food pantries, agriculture partners and donors joined hands to distribute 6,800 Thanksgiving meals to neighbors in need in Spokane, the Mid-Columbia and Yakima Valley. To each of you, we say thank you.
