Wednesday, March 19th 2008, is the date for Second Harvest Tri-Cities’ 3rd annual signature fund raising event, “Taking a Bite Out of Hunger”.
Twenty or more of the areas finest restaurants will be providing samples of their best main dishes and as well as exquisite hors d’oeuvres and desserts. More than 15 wineries will be featuring their award-winning wines as well as beers from 4 microbreweries. During the evening guests will have an opportunity to bid on hot ticket items at the silent and live auctions.
While taking a bite, yourself, all who attend also are taking a bite out of hunger in our local area since all the money raised is used locally to help those who are in need.
For more information on how to donate an auction item, become a sponsor and/or attend the event, contact Second Harvest Tri-Cities at (509) 585-3924
Fighting Hunger, Feeding Hope
Second Harvest Tri-Cities’ website, they bring community resources together to feed people in need through empowerment, education and partnerships. Although not a traditional food bank, 2nd Harvest Tri-Cities functions as the distribution warehouse to other food banks. Food donations that arrive at the 2nd Harvest Tri-Cities warehouse are distributed through a network of agencies serving non-profit food banks, food-feeding centers, and churches. According to the Director, Kathye Kilgore, “It’s literally the food bank to the food banks.”
Second Harvest Tri-Cities is committed to ensuring a safe and nutritious supply of food is available to families, children and seniors in need in our neighborhoods. Thanks to generous community partners, Second Harvest is able to provide six pounds of donated food for every dollar donated. The 5,000-square-foot warehouse in Kennewick distributed 3.2 million pounds of food last year. This makes every donation to Second Harvest a valuable investment in fighting hunger and feeding hope.
