Operation Harvest was started 34 years ago with the hope to squash hunger in the Yakima Valley. It's been a long road but every little bit of donations that you give every single year helps immensely in our valley. Operation Harvest's goal this year is to raise 150,000 - 200, 000 pounds for nine Yakima Valley food banks and you can help.

You can donate to Operation Harvest buy leaving a bag of non-perishable food items on your porch and volunteers will pick them up Saturday starting at 9am. You can also make a cash donation to Rotary Operation Harvest at PO Box 464, Yakima Wa 98907.

Your donations are gladly accepted and all proceeds go to the Yakima food banks and if you need a pick up at your house, you can call the Salvation Army Office at 453-3139.
