SPOKANE, Wash. – The Spokane Chiefs are pleased to announce that with the help of fans at Fred Meyer locations last week, Second Harvest will be able to provide nearly 4,000 meals to people in need around the community.
The Chiefs were at three local Fred Meyer stores last week, bagging groceries and taking photos while collecting food and monetary donations for Second Harvest. Fans stepped up, between non-perishable food items and cash, to donate enough to provide 3,930 meals to feed families and those in need around the Spokane region and Inland Northwest.
Thank you, Chiefs fans!
About Second Harvest
Founded in 1971 as a central warehouse for a handful of emergency food pantries in Spokane, Second Harvest is the pioneering organization that leads the fight against hunger in the Inland Northwest. Today, partnerships with 250 neighborhood food banks and meal centers make it possible for Second Harvest to provide food to thousands of hungry people each week. Second Harvest’s food bank network spans 21 counties in Eastern Washington and five counties in North Idaho – just over 51,000 square miles. Second Harvest provides 2 million pounds of free food each month throughout its vast service area. Second Harvest’s food helps fill the nutritional gap for people in poverty, the working poor, elderly and disabled people on very low fixed incomes, and children and families in temporary crisis.
