Event Description

 The three Kittitas Valley Rotary clubs are joining together for this year’s OPERATION HARVEST 2017. The three service groups will gather food and cash donations to help feed the hungry in our community.  This year is looking to be the largest drive yet.

Rotary is a leadership organization made up of local business, professional, and civic leaders. The clubs meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships, and with these connections are able to get things done in this community.

“This is a great opportunity for the business community and residents to share their bounty with our neighbors who are struggling to put food on their tables.  It doesn’t matter if its food or cash, all of it makes a difference.” 

On Saturday, November 4, Kittitas County residents are encouraged to participate by donating funds or food at specified store locations throughout town. By 9am on Saturday morning, a team of Rotarian Volunteers will be stationed at Super One Foods, BiMart, Rite Aid, Grocery Outlet, Safeway and Fred Meyer until 3pm. Volunteers will hand out flyers helping shoppers know what kinds of foods and non food items are needed at FISH Community Food Bank. These suggested shopping lists will make it easy for shoppers to grab a few extra grocery items while they shop the store.

Rotarian volunteers will also be stationed at FISH’s warehouse to receive and sort the donated food. 

This is a great opportunity for our community to come together and make sure no one goes to bed hungry in Kittitas County!
