PASCO — AgWest Farm Credit and Northwest Agricultural Consultants are partnering with Second Harvest to help celebrate the impact our region’s ag community makes for people facing hunger,
In addition, the companies will match the first $15,000 donated this month, Ag Month, to Second Harvest, which supports food banks and pantries and other efforts to help feed indigent residents.
“We are so fortunate to live in a region that provides a cornucopia of healthy food,” Second Harvest CEO Jason Clark said. “Our friends at AgWest and NWAG are leaders in understanding what it takes to provide food from field to plate.”
“AgWest Farm Credit understands how essential a robust and productive agricultural industry is to nourish communities,” company spokeswoman Heidi Whitman added. “It’s especially important that we partner in efforts to grow fresh and nutritious food to share with our neighbors experiencing food insecurity. Good food builds great communities and we’re proud to walk alongside local farmers, producers, and Second Harvest in making a difference throughout the Inland Northwest.”
NWAG’s president West Carter agreed.
“We’re fortunate to work year-round with the people who raise crops in this region, from beans to wheat, and corn to tree fruits,” he said, noting hunger here is unnecessary and unacceptable.
All this month – including National Ag Day on March 21 – Second Harvest is honoring the ag community, highlighting agriculture’s contributions on social media and at both our Hunger Solutions Centers, in Pasco and Spokane.
AgWest Farm Credit is contributing $10,000 and Northwest Agricultural Consultants is contributing $5,000
to help Second Harvest obtain food indigent residents. And during the month of March, AgWest and NWAG will match the first $15,000 donated.
