Through our One Day offerings, we’ve been partnering with 2nd Harvest for mobile food banks here at the Garden and the Tri-Cities’ first Bite 2 Go program, assisting over 70 children with weekend meals at Vista Elementary. Learn more about this partnership in 2nd Harvest’s Summer Newsletter 2016.

MOBILE FOOD Banks @ THE GARDEN

Since the beginning of our partnership with Second Harvest Tri-Cities in early 2015, we hosted 42 mobile markets through which 351,878 pounds of food was distributed on our campus! As we enter into the summer season, the Garden is also moving into a new season of outreach focus.

May 30, 2018 is our last mobile food bank. Food distribution is from 11am to 1pm, while supplies last. If possible, bring a box or bags to take food home with you. We’ve listed other resources below and encourage you to connect with them to supplement any food needs you may have.

2nd Harvest provides the food and WE provide the 15-20 team members to make it happen.  This is a perfect way to get your hands on something GREAT and continue to make a difference!  Set-up starts at 10am and clean-up is done by 2pm. Have questions about serving at the Food Bank? E-mail info@thegardentricities.com. First time serving with us? Please read our FAQ’s: GCA Mobile Food Bank serving FAQ.

Our families have been honored to serve your family through this Second Harvest Partnership!

BITE 2 GO

Beginning in February 2015, the Garden partnered with Second Harvest Inland Northwest to support a weekend feeding program at Vista Elementary! The name of this program is called “Bite 2 Go” and each Friday during the school year, participating students receive a pre-packaged bag of food to take home. (Changes to the school schedule may require Thursday deliveries and our Bite 2 Go team will be notified.)  Through your generosity, over 50 children are fed each weekend of the school year!

The shelf-stable milk, juice, cereal, entrees and snacks are safe for children to handle on their own because they don’t require any cooking or other preparation.  Each kit includes, but is not limited to, the following items:

2-Entrees
2-Cereals
2-Fruit Items
2-Self-Stable Milks
2-Cereal Bars
4-Snack Items
*Items may vary depending on availability.

In addition to the Garden’s ongoing partnership through Second Harvest, we also reach out to the staff of Vista Elementary and support them in various ways throughout the year, by dropping off treats, holding a pancake breakfast, helping with grounds work project, and more.

E-mail Pastor Cheryl Staley at cheryl@thegardentricities.com or fill out a Connection Card here, or the next time you’re at the Garden, and write “school” on it, and we’ll be in touch!
