Northwest Harvest distributed more than 26 million pounds of food last year, setting a distribution record and allowing us to serve unprecedented numbers of hungry people.
All of our food and operating funds come from individuals, businesses, foundations and other organizations, and 92 percent of our total budget goes to food distribution.
In 2007 Northwest Harvest moved into our "Warehouse For Washington" in Kent, where we perform the heart of our mission—receiving, handling and distributing food. The Kent warehouse is critical to our efforts to provide more nutritious food to our partner food banks and meal programs throughout the state.more
After more than five years serving the Spokane community with just a truck and no warehouse, Northwest Harvest leased a warehouse in Spokane that became fully operational in early 2010. Located in the Spokane Valley, the warehouse offers 13,600 square feet of dry storage and two loading docks, one of which is occupied by a refrigerated trailer. This facility has improved our level of efficiency significantly.more
