Helping out as always, Northwest Harvest will be distributing 680 produce boxes on Friday to those in need in Yakima.  Anyone in need can pick up a box at the Wesley United Methodist Church, 14 N. 48th Avenue in Yakima (between Tieton Drive and Summitview Ave.) on Friday June 5th.

The numbers, like the hearts of workers, are always big when it comes to NW Harvest. , Since mid-March, the non-profit food bank distributor has, through different organizations, handed out an extra 73,000 pounds of food and fresh produce for families in Yakima county

This will be their first public drive through distribution event with no eligibility requirements or restrictions for what is being called a no-contact  event.  People will be able to drive in to the church parking lot from N. 48th Avenue and volunteers will place the box of produce in their car and they will exit out onto W. Chestnut Avenue.

Distribution begins at 9:00am and will continue until all boxes are given away.  Each box contains a fresh bag of greens, apples, oranges, potatoes and onions for a family of 4.
