Oregon Food Bank collects food from farmers, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, individuals and government sources. They distribute that food through a Statewide Network of 21 Regional Food Banks and approximately 970 partner agencies serving all of Oregon and Clark County, Washington.
Oregon Food Bank does more than just provide canned food for the hungry. They believe we must also address the root causes of hunger through public policy, nutrition and garden education, and public awareness. They focus on freshness, champion self-reliance and advocate for change.
