About

Fresh Alliance is a partnership between Oregon Food Bank and grocery stores throughout the metro region. We collect perishable food ( anything refrigerated you’d find in a grocery store) that is on/near expiration, bring it back to our facility, and get volunteer help to repack it. Since this food is all extremely perishable, our goal is to have this food ready for agencies to pick up the morning after it comes to us.

The exciting news is that this program is growing by leaps and bounds; we’re receiving more food than ever before! The challenge we face is getting enough volunteer help to repack this extremely perishable food and get it out to agencies as quickly as possible.

Shifts are Monday-Friday from 9AM-12PM & from 1:30PM-4:30PM
