Mobile food bank helping hundreds of people every month

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Over 200 people turned out for Second Harvest's mobile food bank at Grace Lutheran Church in Yakima Wednesday.
 
Based out of Pasco, Second Harvest sets up the food bank at the church the second Wednesday of every month.

Organizers say there's always a big turnout, but this time of year they see even more people come out in need of help.    

"This time of year when money is certainly a little tighter then it is the rest of the year, and it's certainly tight then, we certainly see more folks at these distributions," said Rick Stromberg with 2nd Harvest.

NBC Right Now is partnering with Second Harvest and Northwest Harvest for our annual family food drive.

We'll be set up at our studio's in the Tri Cities and Yakima on December 1st taking donations and non-perishable food items.
