Kenworth employees at the company's headquarters in Kirkland, Wash., recently conducted a food drive that resulted in a donation of nearly 7,500 pounds of food to Northwest Harvest.
After employees helped load all the food into one of the company's Kenworth T270 medium-duty trucks, it was driven to Northwest Harvest warehouse in Kent, Wash., to make the delivery.
According to Northwest Harvest, the organization is the only non-profit food bank distributor operating statewide in Washington with a network of more than 350 food banks, meal programs and high-need schools. Northwest Harvest provides over 1.7 million meals every month to this network. All of its food and operating funds come from individuals, businesses, foundations and other organizations, and 92% of its total budget goes to food distribution.
