Milbrandt Vineyards is kicking off its annual food drive at its Prosser tasting room and Mattawa winery the Friday after Thanksgiving.
Milbrandt Vineyards will accept donations of nonperishable food or $5 in lieu of regular tasting fees until Dec. 30, according to a news release. All proceeds will benefit Prosser's Jubilee Ministry Food Bank and the Mattawa Food Bank. Both expect an increase in families requesting help from the food banks for the holidays.
The company hopes to double last year's contribution of more than $1,000 and 100 pounds of food.
To contact Milbrandt Vineyards Tasting Room, at 508 Cabernet Court, Prosser, call 509-788-0030. The winery at 23934 Road T.1 S.W., in Mattawa, is not open for tasting.
