Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Northwest Harvest provides food to more than 375 partner food banks, hot meal programs, and high need schools across the state. At our Yakima warehouse, we need the help of many caring and energetic volunteers to help us sort and reapackage bulk food items, as well as sort through food drive donations. The items you sort and pack will then be distributed to programs in the Yakima area.
