Four years ago, in-kind contributions from generous contractors and vendors played a huge role in building a state-of-the-art teaching kitchen at Second Harvest at a greatly reduced price. Today, numerous in-kind commitments have already been made by contractors and suppliers for the Child Hunger Solution Center. This includes all-in support from General Contractor/Construction Manager Paul Shelton of Construction Management and Forensics, who is donating 100% of his time. As a construction material supplier or contractor, you can get involved in this process, and vendors of all sizes can make a big impact by teaming up on scopes of work.

One out of five kids in Eastern Washington and North Idaho is at risk of hunger. That means more than 86,000 children and teens in the region face hunger. Second Harvest’s current distribution center does not have the capacity to meet the need. The additional warehouse space will bring hundreds of volunteers together to pack thousands of Bite2Go weekend food kits for students in need during the school year. Volunteers also will sort and pack fresh produce and other donated food destined for Second Harvest’s partner food banks and its own Mobile Market to reach the most vulnerable families with children.
