YAKIMA, Wash. — Healthy Eats Nutrition Services is hosting a brunch platter event over the weekend and encouraging donations to help provide a meal and food supplies to a local youth resource center.

Anyone ordering a platter will have the option to also donate money to benefit Rod’s House, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping homeless, at-risk or otherwise vulnerable youth in Yakima County.

“We are providing a meal for them and also helping to stock their pantry with snacks and water bottles and whatever kids are needing right now, especially with the heat,” said Elaina Moon, owner of Health Eats Nutrition Services.

Moon said as of Thursday afternoon, they had raised more than $300 to go toward the meal and supplies.

The brunch platters serve two to three people and are available online here for $50. They can be picked up from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Healthy Eats Classroom, 1101  W. Yakima Ave. Suite 115 in Yakima.

People can choose either the sweet or savory option.; both come with the recipes to recreate the platter at home. The savory platter includes crispy roasted potatoes, cheesy hashbrown waffles, bacon aioli, homemade everything bagels with chive garlic cream cheese and veggie toppings, carrot lox and grilled asparagus with hollandaise.

The sweet platter includes waffles with cherry maple syrup, chocolate mini donuts, fresh fruit and mini coffee cake muffins. All items are dairy-free and egg-free, but some contain gluten.

People can also donate toward the meal without purchasing a platter or donate directly to Rod’s House here.

Later this month, Moon said she plans to host another event that will benefit the Yakima YWCA.
