Free fresh food coming Tuesday


The Mobile Food Bank of 2nd Harvest will distribute free produce, nutritious perishable products and other groceries for families in need at Zion Lutheran Church, Tuesday, May 24 from 10 a.m. to noon.

Last year’s 2nd Harvest visit distributed 7,230 pounds of vegetables and perishable foods, and officials here said that about 10,000 pounds of free food should be available this year. Those attending the free food distribution are asked to bring their own boxes.

This year, there will be two such free distributions of food by 2nd Harvest. The second visit is scheduled for Sept. 22, and will be sponsored by Coulee Dam Federal Credit Union, as part of its 75th anniversary.

Next Tuesday’s free distribution is sponsored by Zion Lutheran Church, Grand Coulee Community Church, Thrivent Financial and American Legion Post 157. The 2nd Harvest receives support from Asuris Northwest Health.

The distribution event is open to the public and no documentation is needed.

For additional information, call Evelyn Russell at 633-0648 or the 24-hour Mobile Food Bank information line at 509-252-6270.
