Yoke's, 2nd Harvest, KXLY team up for Season of Giving food drive

SPOKANE, Wash. - It's the Season of Giving, and KXLY 4 News has teamed up with Yoke's Fresh Markets and 2nd Harvest to make sure everyone has something to eat this holiday.

Kevin Miller volunteers at 2nd Harvest three to four times a week, the 62-year-old riding his bike everywhere he goes.

"I live up by NorthTown so it's not quite four miles one way," Miller said.

He's helped out at 2nd Harvest for five or six years now but not long ago he was the one needing help.

Miller was nearly homeless for several years and understands what it's like to be hungry.

"I made some not wise decisions and ended up using the food bank more than a few times," he said.

So he made a promise to himself that when his luck turned around he'd return the favor, and said that it made him feel good to volunteer at the food bank.

Yoke's has teamed up with KXLY and 2nd Harvest to help raise donations for the Season of Giving food drive.

"We're really asking folks to help us get those extra dollars and extra donations that will help the people that lost so much during this recent windstorm,"Julie Humphreys with 2nd Harvest said. "You see a lot of people that need the help and then knowing here that the food you're producing goes to them. Pretty special."

You can stop by any Yoke's Fresh Market in the area and buy a bag already filled with food for five or ten dollars; cash donations will be accepted at the stores. You can also click here and donate online.
