Growing Food Justice Across Washington
Our Work|Regional Distribution|Central Washington
Our Yakima Distribution Center serves around 65 hunger relief programs and up to 17 schools in nine central Washington counties. Our valuable relationships with the agricultural community in the most fertile region of the state makes our Yakima Distribution Center a key actor during harvest months. By providing transportation to move bulk shipments; recruiting volunteers for repacking efforts; and responding quickly to farmers, growers, and processors, Northwest Harvest can reduce waste, save money for our agricultural partners, and distribute nutritious produce that might otherwise end up in a landfill.
We also distribute staples such as rice, masa, beans, pasta, oats, and meats throughout Central Washington. These essential products, combined with a variety of donated food from the local community, ensure that our partner food programs can provide well-rounded, nutritious meals for all Washington families.
