Second Harvest is our area's largest food bank, benefiting all ages and walks of life. One of their main missions is childhood hunger. And, as it is explained on their website " Getting healthy food to children who need it most is a fundamental goal of Second Harvest".
Part of reaching this goal is their recently announced plans to expand their footprint to a new building. Second Harvest has acquired the 21,000 square foot facility at 402 N. Perry, which it will remodel and re-open as the Wolff Family Child Hunger Solution Center. The new building is just a short distance away from Second Harvest's existing 83,000 square foot distribution center on Front.
The new second building will add 13,000 square feet of additional warehouse space as well as a permanent home for a Bite2Go Volunteer Center. As well as flexible training space for nutrition education classes and space for some of their community partners.
Renovation work will begin soon with an official ground breaking next month. They also still have a bit to go toward their needed funding goal for the project. More info on this project and all that Second Harvest does in the Inland Northwest community, visit their website at-
