Less than 24 hours to go before our 12th annual Home Team Harvest takes to the streets! We’ve set a high goal— 3 million meals to feed hungry people throughout Washington State.  What initially felt like an intimidating number now appears to be within our reach.  We have been overwhelmed with calls from the community to schedule donations.


Famer’s Insurance, Seattle Chamber and Snap On Tools will be there to make donations.  Auto/boat lovers like the Spanaway Moonshiners Jeep Club, Rainier Classic Chevy’s, United Catcher Boats Association, and Western Washington Firebirds will be rolling in this year too.  National Frozen Foods, Wilcox Farms, and Full Circle Farms, are loading up their trucks for the drive to Northwest Harvest’s Kent Warehouse. 


It’s amazing to be a part of the community involvement.  Several Home Team Harvest heroes will be there too, like the familiar faces of Machinist Union District Lodge 751, Muckleshoot Casino, Pacific Nautiques, and Mashedpotatoes.org!  It’s people like this who are helping end hunger in Washington State.


It all starts with a donation. Thanks to Safeway and U.S. Bank who sponsor this event, and to all the dedicated KING 5 team who make Home Team Harvest possible!
Tune in tomorrow morning. Let's raise 3 million meals.

Can’t make it tomorrow to donate?

Text the word "HOMETEAM" to 85944 or call tomorrow 7AM-6PM 1-855-HARVST5 (427-8785)
