Northwest Harvest Regional Distribution Center & Fruitvale Community Market

Northwest Harvest’s statewide distribution operation was relocated to Yakima in 2022 to serve all counties in Washington State by constructing a 200,000-sf warehouse with over 16,000 pallet positions accommodated by 100,000 sf of chilled space, 60,000 sf of freezer and 40,000 sf of ambient storage.

The Fruitvale Community Market is a 4,000-sf free grocery store serving food insecure clients modeled after the SODO Community Market located in Seattle:

The Fruitvale Community Market will allow shoppers to have an experience like that of any grocery store, except no payment is required at the end. Unlike the traditional food bank model where food is bagged and distributed, in this model shoppers are engaged in their in-store experience like customers and allowed to shop with dignity.
