Wal-Mart Foundation Donates Semi-truck to Second Harvest

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - A big donation from the Wal-Mart foundation will help Second Harvest deliver fresh produce and other items to food banks around the region.

Second Harvest used a $110,000 grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation to purchase a brand-new semi-truck to help with deliveries to local food banks.

"It's going to be able to help us distribute about 28 million pounds of food.  That's more than what we've already been able to distribute, which is really important because the need now is greater than ever," said 2nd Harvest Development Director Cassie Hurley.

Wal-Mart volunteers will be helping out with a mobile food bank event onWwednesday at the Boys and Girls Club Center on 18th Avenue in Pasco.

Food will be distributed from 11am to 1pm.

It's open to everyone, and you don't need to bring any documentation with you, but you should bring a box.
