Coastal Harvest, in cooperation with Grays Harbor United Way, is joining a regional effort to smash the Guinness World Record for a 24-hour food drive. Donated food products are currently being collected at various locations throughout the Twin Harbors. The collections will culminate with a weigh-in at Tacoma's historic Stadium Bowl on Friday & Saturday, Sept. 17-18. Following the weigh-in event, all food products collected in this effort will be returned to the Twin Harbors to benefit local food banks.
Coastal Harvest is participating in this effort as a member of the Independant Food Distribution Network. We partner with Northwest Harvest of King County and Emergency Food Network of Pierce County to form the IFDN. Through this cooperative association we are able to provide more and better quality food to the communities we serve.
How many people can say they were a part of a Guinness World Record? Here is your chance! To break the record we need to bring in 509,148 pounds of food--our goal is one million pounds.

— Thursday, Sept. 9 - Westport, Red Apple Market, - 4-7 p.m.
