Northwest Harvest

Help Us Break A Guinness Book World Record

August 17th 2010, is the official kick-off of the One Million Pounds of Food Drive which will go through September 17th 2010.

This drive is trying to break the Guinness Book World Record!

NW Harvest is trying to collect one million pounds of food in 24 hours to beat the world record that is now at 500,000+ pounds. Collection bins will start popping up this week throughout Facilities Services and other offices on campus for your donations.

This is a great way Facilities Services can continue to focus attention on the incredible need that exists for food in the Puget Sound Region. One million pounds of food translates to 23 semi-truckloads, all of which will make an impact.

Northwest Harvest can provide one nutritious meal for a family of three for $0.67.
