A big thank you to all of our viewers who came out to support this year's Hometown Harvest Food Drive. As of 6:00 p.m., we've raised and collected enough for 304,000 meals benefiting Northwest Harvest! 

We got a call into the Connect Center at one point from a man who donated $500 and said, "tell Dan and Stephanie I wasn't going to donate and then they did a rain dance and I thought, well now I have to." 

We couldn't have done it without the generosity of our community.

Previous Coverage:

Friday is our Hometown Harvest Food Drive benefiting Northwest Harvest.  

Each year we hold our Hometown Harvest Food Drive. We see your generosity each and every year and the hundreds of thousands of pounds of food you donate, stretches into meals for your neighbors, friends, and family that otherwise wouldn't have a meal at all

We have five locations where you can help this Friday: 

South Hill Safeway

  • E. 2509 29th Ave.

Shadle Park Safeway

  • 2507 W. Wellesley

Spokane Valley Safeway

  • 14020 E. Sprague Ave.

North Spokane Albertsons

  • 6520 N. Nevada Street

Coeur d'Alene Albertsons

  • 220 Ironwood Drive

Our anchors, reporters, and crews will be at each location all day from 6:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. collecting your donations. While you're out there, make sure you let us know by posting to social media using the hashtag #KHQHH.

Keep an eye out for Santa Claus this year. He will be making some visits to each of our locations between 7am and 5pm and surprising a few lucky participants with some gift cards.

The first 1,000 people to show up and donate at least six items will also be getting a pair of "D-Fence" gloves from Safeway so you can cheer on the Seahawks!

Look for updates throughout the day on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat pages. 

Items we will be looking for include: 

  • Baby food
  • Infant formula
  • Canned soup
  • Canned stews
  • Canned fruit
  • Canned meats
  • Canned vegetables
  • Brown rice
  • Cereal
  • Chili
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Pasta
  • Peanut butter
  • Pork and beans

We had a great drive last year thanks to you and are looking forward to an even better one this year!
