NW Farmers Fighting Hunger Support Second Harvest
The NW Farmers Fighting Hunger Project lead by the Dairy Farmers of Washington during June dairy month comes to the Richland Fred Meyer store (101 Wellsian Way) on Friday, June 20, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. . Shoppers can meet representatives from the department of agriculture’s food assistance program, Second Harvest, and dairy farmers.
NW farmers show their commitment to fight hunger by donating more than 13.5 million pounds of food to the state’s food banks each year, including 200 gallons of milk each week in Eastern Washington alone. A little does a lot. For every $10 donated, your local food bank can distribute enough food to provide 35 meals.
The Richland Fred Meyer collection bin will remain during the month-long June campaign, and cash donations can be made at Fred Meyer checkout registers and on www.NWFarmersFightingHunger.org .
