The Oregon Food Bank believes that no one should be hungry. Oregon Food Bank collects and distributes food through a network of four Oregon Food Bank branches and 17 independent regional food banks serving Oregon and Clark County, Washington.
Along with approximately 970 partner agencies, Oregon Food Bank helps nearly one in five households fend off hunger. They work to address the root causes of hunger by offering nutrition education, strengthening local food systems, collaborating with community groups and advocating for hunger relief at the local and federal level.
More than 93 cents of every dollar donated to Oregon Food Bank goes directly to fighting hunger and is a member of Feeding America’s national food bank network.
National Hunger Month
This September, Oregon Food Bank, together with the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks, will mobilize across all 50 states in an effort to bring an end to hunger. Hunger Action Month is designed to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of the fact that 42.2 million Americans, including 13 million children, are food insecure, according to the USDA.
In Oregon and Clark County, Washington, 1 in 5 people struggle with hunger and may not know where they’ll find their next meal.
We believe no one should be hungry. We believe that TOGETHER, WE CAN SOLVE HUNGER.
