Superfresh Growers Volunteers at 2021 Turkey Drive

For the second consecutive year, Superfresh Growers team members had the honor of participating in Second Harvest’s Turkey Drive, an annual program that provides food boxes to Yakima residents. Pallets of boxes, each holding all the necessary ingredients for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, lined the parking lot of the Yakima Fair Grounds. Our team, along with a few other local businesses, assisted in distributing the boxes to families in need.

This was the sixth annual Turkey Drive hosted by Second Harvest. Cars lined up around the block and down the street, many already in line for hours. The boxes were filled with a turkey and all the ingredients needed for a traditional dinner, providing a free Thanksgiving meal to 700 families.
