Second Harvest Shopping Spree | Community Spirit
Ready, set, shop!!!
Mark Peterson faced off against KXLY viewer Justin Holderby in a 3 minute shopping spree at Yoke's Fresh Market today. Justin won a KXLY contest and got the chance to fill his cart with groceries to take home. Mark filled his cart with food to donate to the Second Harvest Food Bank.
Thanks to Mark's quick feet (and his Second Harvest helper), the food bank collected $1178.05 in groceries. Our favorite morning weatherman loaded up on cheese sticks, peanut butter, fruit cups and more.
Justin loaded up his cart with his favorites - beef jerky and coffee - and walked away with $556.27 in groceries. He also won a freezer from Fred's Appliance. The lucky winner remembered to pay it forward and donated $100 to the cause.
Today's shopping spree is part of our Season of Giving Food Drive. It's an effort by KXLY, Yoke's and Second Harvest to feed Spokane's Hungry. Second Harvest says is hasn't seen a need so great in its entire is 40 year history.
Our Season of Giving Food Drive ends today, but Yoke's Fresh Market says you can continue to buy pre-made bags of food to donate through the weekend.
