Once again 2nd Harvest, Ben Franklin Transit, and the Toyota Center and all the volunteers are stepping up to get food to those in need in and around the Tri-Cities and even Prosser. Many families are impacted by the pandemic as our state has been locked down since mid-March here's what you need to know spread the word if you know someone in need..

In conjunction with the Second Harvest Tri-Cities Mobile Market drive-thru event being held at the Toyota Center, BFT will be holding FOUR food distribution events just for transit riders at our transit centers in Tri-Cities and Prosser on the same day.

--------------------------------------

FOOD DISTRIBUTION OPTIONS:
Date: Thursday, June 18
Time: 11am (while supplies last)

Ride the bus or take BFT CONNECT for FREE and head to any of our transit centers below:

• Three Rivers Transit Center (Kennewick)
• 22nd Ave Transit Center (Pasco)
• Knight Street Transit Center (Richland)
• Stacy Avenue Transit Center (Prosser, starting at 11:15am)

The food will be packaged in a box with handles so you can take it on the bus. However, we encourage people to bring a hand cart or something to help carry the boxes and make traveling a little easier.
