It’s time to “Pack the Pantry!” Thursday and Friday September 8th & 9th, 2016 At your eight local neighborhood Albertson's benefitting 2nd Harvest Inland Northwest. Last year, the Spokane Association of Realtors teamed up once again with all of our local Alberston's stores to collect food and money for 2nd Harvest Inland Northwest food bank. 1 out of 6 people in Spokane is hungry or at risk of hunger. 1 out of 4 kids in Spokane is not getting enough to eat. 16,000 people stand in food bank lines in Spokane County each month and nearly half of those in line are children. 54% of the parents skip meals so their children can eat. 2nd Harvest tells us that the money collected and food pounds totals from last year's SAR food drive meant they were able to serve 94,000 meals. We collected 44,820 pounds of food and $12,535.33 which translated to 6 pounds of food for every dollar. Last year, donations through Crowdrise alone raised $3,445 and provided 17,225 meals. It's quick and easy. Please consider donating to this important cause again this year. Thank you!
