Second harvest to expand warehouse
Groundbreaking is scheduled for September 13.
Second Harvest, an organization that collects donations of fruit and other goods for food banks, is renovating its 60-year-old warehouse in Spokane, Washington.
This will allow it to handle twice the volume of fresh fruits and vegetables. Currently, it collects 7 million pounds per year for distribution to 250 food banks and meal centers in eastern Washington and northern Idaho.
Part of the cost of the renovation will be covered by a $1.25 million state capital budget grant.
A groundbreaking event is scheduled for September 13 from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Second Harvest, 1234 East Front Street, Spokane. For more information contact Rod Wieber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
