RICHLAND, Wash. — Generosity goes a long way for those suffering from food insecurity. The pandemic has made access to fresh produce and goods even more difficult for many families and people who were already struggling with this issue. If you’ve had a difficult time feeding yourself and your family, New Beginning Christian Community Church of Pasco is here to help out.

On Thursday June 3, volunteers from the church will host a community food giveaway at First Baptist Church of Richland located at 1107 Wright Avenue in Richland. The event is being held for two hours from 3 to 5 p.m. tomorrow. Volunteers will distribute boxes filled with 30 lbs worth of food and essential groceries for those in need.

Officials from New Beginning Christian Community Church of Pasco confirmed that the group was unexpectedly gifted 450 boxes of food to distribute to Tri-Cities families in need. This is a collaborative effort from New Beginning, Restoration Community Impact and Cascadia Produce of Auburn, Washington.

Participants are asked to remain in their cars as church volunteers load boxes into their cars. If you plan on stopping by, you’re asked to wear a mask while interacting with volunteers to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19 in the community. Someone from their team will make contact with participants at their car window, according to church officials.
