Free food giveaway Saturday at Yakima church
YAKIMA, Wash. — Nonprofits, farms and churches across the region have teamed up with the federal Farmers to Families Food Box Program to combat food insecurity during the pandemic.
This month, the organizations are holding a drive-up food distribution event every Saturday in a different city in southeastern Washington. This weekend, they’ll be giving away 70,000 pounds of food at the Central Assembly of God Church, 701 S. Third Ave. in Yakima.
The food distribution will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and event organizers ask that participants remain in their cars if they decide to participate. Anyone who receives a box will be asked to wear a mask while interacting with volunteers and other community members.
The event is a collective effort by New Beginning Christian Community Church of Pasco, Restoration Community Impact of Pasco, Cascadia Produce of Auburn, Badger Farms of Benton City and Farmer Frog of Woodinville.
