Governor Jay Inslee will visit the Wenatchee Valley Friday to make three stops.

According to the Governor's Office, Inslee will start his visit in Cashmere for a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:00am at Beta Hatch. The company will be the largest mealworm producing facility in North America. The Department of Commerce provided almost $1 million for the project from its Clean Energy Fund, as mealworms are a less carbon-intensive alternative to traditional livestock feeds.

Inslee will then head to Wenatchee in the afternoon, making stops at NCW Tech Alliance on North Wenatchee Avenue for a roundtable discussion about digital inclusion before appearing at Kiwanis Methow Park to meet with Parque Padrinos.
