Volunteers Chop Away for Annual Spaghetti Feed Benefit

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash-- Volunteers chopped away Monday night in preparation for the 14th Annual Spaghetti Dinner for Yakima County Safe Kids.

Chopping and more chopping. When you're planning to feed close to 1,000 people a lot of food is needed. Raising almost $3,000 last year, all the proceeds go towards Yakima County Safe Kids Coalition, a non-profit aimed at preventing childhood injury.

Dinner will take place at Yakima Fire Station 1 on Front Street Tuesday night, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

"It's a lot of fun, we get here, we have 30 pounds of onions. Boxes of bell peppers, things like that. So we just chop all night, get in some good laughs in before the hectic day tomorrow," said Brianne Baron, coordinator for Safe Kids.

Tickets are $5 for adults and only $3 for children and seniors. Quite a steal since it's an all you can eat spaghetti feed. Brianne said they use a big pot from a party supply store in order to cook all the sauce.

While volunteers wouldn't share their spaghetti recipe, they promised promised it'll be good.
