35th annual Operation Harvest food drive arrives in Yakima this weekend

YAKIMA, Wash. - Hundreds of people in Yakima will donate their time this weekend to make sure the less fortunate have food on the table.

The Yakima Rotary Club will host its 35th annual Operation Harvest.

It’s a community food drive aiming to restock nine food banks in Yakima.

Residents are encouraged to leave bags of non-perishable food on their porches between 9a.m. and noon on Saturday.

They will be picked up by volunteers and taken to the Salvation Army to be divided between the various food banks.

"It’s everyone in the community showing up and doing something for everyone else in the community that’s the really big thing that I think is so important and its why it’s been running for so long and why it’s been successful for so long,” said Operation Harvest co-chair Charlie Robin.

For those who live farther out in Yakima, donations can be dropped off at Wrays supermarket, Rosauers Pharmacy and the Salvation Army all located in Yakima.
