Campaign for Northwest Harvest
Northwest Harvest is building a brand-new 10.6 acre Yakima campus: a new addition in the heart of the Yakima Valley that will reshape the experience of food access through Northwest Harvest and across Washington State.
As we move toward our ambitious goal of cutting hunger in half by 2028, we must build a food system that gives everyone the fundamental human experience we all deserve: preparing, eating, and sharing food with dignity and health.
Through a brand-new distribution center in the heart of the Yakima Valley, we will reshape the experience of food access through Northwest Harvest.
When we enrich Yakima Valley’s ecosystem of small farmers and growers, address health and hunger disparities, and create new opportunities for people in this region through our campaign—we center our commitment to equity across Washington state.
We will deliver a higher volume of food across our state more quickly to help more people get the food they need across Washington.
We will increase our capacity for delivering and storing nutritious foods that help people and families prepare balanced and delicious meals with dignity.
We will make a major investment in the Yakima Valley by creating quality jobs, supporting local farmers and growers, and engaging community members and partners to design a true community space.

Join us in taking our community’s next big step toward a hunger-free future.
Northwest Harvest’s Yakima Distribution Center will open in December 2022 at 1819 Fruitvale Boulevard. Our no-cost onsite grocery store will follow in March 2023. For questions about the campaign, please contact Jason Kildall here.
“At Northwest Harvest, we refuse to accept hunger as inevitable for our neighbors and community. This new Yakima campus will be a significant force in the fight for food security for all Washingtonians and a major investment in our local farms and communities.”
