As the economy challenges more households who are struggling to put food on the table, Hirai Farms, Annie's Fun, Sodexo, Gonzaga University and McCain Foods teamed up November 16 to help Second Harvest provide food for holiday meals.
At a special event at the McCarthey Athletic Center parking lot at Gonzaga University, Sodexo, Hirai Farms, Annie's Fun, Gonzaga and McCain Foods partnered to make a substantial donation to Second Harvest.
Specifically, Hirai Farms, Annie's Fun and McCain Foods donated two semi-truckloads of fresh potatoes, which will be included in the holiday meals collected by Second Harvest and distributed to people in need in Spokane in time for Thanksgiving. The Sodexo Foundation presented a check for $2,500 and donated approximately 6,600 pounds of various food items to Second Harvest collected from Gonzaga University students, staff, faculty, and Sodexo employees to help meet the increased need for food during the winter months.
