Program History:

Second Harvest (then the Spokane Food Bank) was founded in 1971 as a central warehouse for a handful of emergency food pantries. Since then, Second Harvest has grown into a streamlined warehouse operation that provides food to partner charities serving 21 counties in Eastern Washington and five counties in North Idaho - just over 51,000 square miles.

Events:

Help the Hungry Warehouse Nights - Every Monday and Wednesday evening from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. Join up to 30 community volunteers in sorting and boxing produce and food drive items.
Letter Carriers Food Drive - More than 150 volunteers are needed for this community food drive in May, 2011.
Season of Giving Food Drive - December, 2011 - School are encouraged to participate by hosting their own food drives.
