The Yakima Salvation Army Food Bank is hoping for help from the community as the food banks see a big increase in people needing help. The food bank is open Monday through Friday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. giving pre-packaged food boxes to individuals and families who drive thru the food bank at 9 South 6th Avenue.
But they need food and cash donations to continue to help the community. They're looking for donations of nonperishable food such as;  canned vegetables, canned fruits, canned meat, powder milk, and peanut butter.  Food Donations can be dropped off Monday - Friday 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. through the South gate, 9 South 6th Avenue. You can stay in your car and they'll unload the donations for you.
