On Saturday, KING 5 and our friends in Western Washington will be taking time to help our neighbors in need with Home Team Harvest. It was an idea hatched by a KING 5 executive who said hunger was not going to happen in our backyard.

Home Team Harvest will be collecting donations across Western Washington. The most desired items: proteins like canned tuna and chicken, chili, canned vegetables, baby food. Drop off donations at any of 10 collection sites.

  • Kitsap Mall
  • Everett Mall
  • Safeway, Bothell
  • Northgate Mall
  • Redmond Town Center
  • Bellevue Square
  • U.S. Bank, Renton
  • Tacoma Mall
  • Pier 1 Plaza, Olympia
  • Coastal Harvest, Aberdeen

If you can’t donate food consider a cash donation. Northwest Harvest can serve a family of three for just 67 cents.  Just text "HOMETEAM" to 85944 to make a $10 donation, or donate at US Bank branches and Safeway stores in Western Washington.
