The holidays can be tough if you are feeling financially stuck. You want to celebrate, but you also want to be smart. So take a deep breath and keep reading, because what you are about to learn is awesome.

Second Harvest and Washington's beef community want to give back to our community in a BIG way -- by donating not only delicious two-and-a-half pound beef roasts to families in need, but also potatoes, apples, onions and bread products.

Here are the dates and details:

  • Tuesday, Dec. 10, noon -2 p.m., Toppenish Community Chest Food Bank 4 N. B St., Toppenish.
  • Wednesday, Dec. 11, noon-2 p.m., State Fair Park 1301 S. Fair Ave., Yakima.

No time like the present to help spread the word and secure a delicious and hearty meal for your family this holiday season.

A big thank you to Second Harvest and the Washington beef community, who in the past nine years have given out more than 2.3 million servings of beef and raised $938,000 to purchase beef for families in need.
