Success by 6 Family Food Drive: Friday, May 31

It's almost summertime, and living is supposed to be easy- but for many families in the Inland Northwest, the summer months are the most difficult time to put food on the table to feed their children. Find out why-and how you can help-by donating to the KHQ-TV Success By 6 Family Food Drive


Peanut butter, tuna, macaroni and cheese- if you have young children, this is the menu of everyday life. But for many parents in the Inland Northwest, feeding the family the most basic of meals in these tough economic times has become increasingly more difficult. 

KHQ TV-along with our Success By 6 sponsors American Family Insurance, the Hometown Chevy dealers and our grocery sponsor Yoke's are gearing up for the Success By 6 Family Food Drive coming up on Friday, May 31st.

The Success By 6 Family Food Drive takes place in the spring to accommodate the tremendous need for food for families in the upcoming summer months.

Many families who use the food banks also rely on the schools' hot lunch program to help feed hungry kids during the school year. Once school is out, the food banks, pantries and meal programs see a huge increase in the number of people using their services and the amount of supplies needed.

Businesses and families, service groups and individuals are all invited to bring in donations to the food drive at these locations:

Yoke's Stores

  • North Foothills Drive
  • Indian Trail
  • Mead
  • Airway Heights
  • Argonne
  • Deer Park
