Spokane Food Fighters: Feeding People In Need

SPOKANE, Wash. — A volunteer group helping keep people fed in Spokane during the pandemic met a major milestone recently.

Spokane Food Fighters reported 715 meals donated to members of the Spokane community in just seven days. The update came Sunday night in an online newsletter.

The grassroots effort was spearheaded by State Representative Marcus Riccelli earlier this month in an effort to feed people in emergency situations.

Thanks to our volunteers for getting out meals tonight including Gonzaga Women's Basketball Head Coach Lisa Fortier and Assistant Coach Craig Fortier! #InlandStrong #SpokaneFoodFighters
