Food distribution held at Senior Center

The Quincy Senior Center once again hosted a Second Harvest Mobile Market free food distribution in Quincy on Oct. 17.
A total of 215 households received more than 9,233 lbs. of fresh and frozen produce and other groceries. Among the items were: frozen beef chubs, potatoes, onions, apples, carrots, radishes, cauliflower, avocado, crackers, breads, muffins and bagels – all for free distribution to Quincy area households in need of food assistance.

As always occurs at these popular events in Grant County, a great group of dedicated volunteers turned out from all corners of the community: Amway Nutrilite, Dell Services, Microsoft Datacenter Operations, Quincy Community Health Center, Hypotherm, Quincy Rotary Club, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; plus a generous handful of Quincy individuals (with no group affiliation identified).
The next Second Harvest Mobile Market event Microsoft has scheduled in Quincy will be held Wednesday, Nov. 14, at Iglesia Metodista.
Volunteers and co-sponsors are always invited to assist with these community events. Contact Cathie Wind at Quincy Rotary Club (cathiewind1970@hotmail.com, or 206-265-9790).
Second Harvest of the Inland Northwest (Spokane) is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) organization eligible to receive tax-deductible donations.
Additional Microsoft-sponsored Second Harvest Mobile Market events are planned around Grant County in Coulee City, Ephrata, Grand Coulee, Mattawa, Moses Lake, Royal City, Soap Lake, Warden in 2018.
