It's the time of year when a lot of us have nice holiday meals, but a growing number of families are having trouble putting food on the table. KING 5's Home Team Harvest is under way and our goal this year is to raise three million meals.

KING 5's Home Team Harvest is underway this week with a goal of raising three million meals. KING 5's Christie Johnson talks with the Northwest Harvest staff in Kent on far our donation dollars go to feed hungry families.

Northwest Harvest feeds the hungry across the state. The most desired items: proteins like canned tuna and chicken, chili, canned vegetables, baby food.

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.

This Saturday is the KING 5 Hometeam Harvest. We'll be out collecting donations across Western Washington. Drop off donations at any of 10 collection sites.
