Central Washington State Fair Facebook
Operation Harvest, now in its 36th year is the biggest single source of donations to local area food banks, which helps provide for the nutrition need of thousands of the valley's children, seniors and families.
You can help and get a free fair pass in the process.
The Central Washington State Fair has teamed up with Yakima Rotary Clubs to collect food by asking Fair-goers to bring three (3) non-perishable food items (no glass please) to the Fair entrance on Wednesday, September 25, any time between noon and 4 p.m.
In exchange for the food  you'll receive a ticket for free admission to the Fair.
If you miss that opportunity you can drop off donations October 5, 2019 at the Salvation Army located at 9 South 6th Avenue in Yakima, where teams of Rotarians will be waiting to sort and deliver the food throughout area foodbanks.
Cash donations are also welcome. For more information visit www.yakimarotary.org.
