Join us in making a Difference in our Community! We are on the lookout for dedicated volunteers, and we extend a warm invitation to you to join our ALL-VOLUNTEER organization. Currently, we need enthusiastic Neighborhood Coordinators.

What's the Role of a Neighborhood Coordinator? As a Neighborhood Coordinator, you will be entrusted with a specific neighborhood of Green Bag Food Donors. Your role is pivotal in ensuring the success of our collection events, which take place six times a year, always on the second Saturday of every even month.

What's Involved? On collection days, pick up green bags filled with non-perishable food from your generous neighbors and deliver the collected items to our central collection site.

Impactful Outreach: The repacked food goes directly to supporting twelve local pantries in Jackson County, ensuring no one in our community goes hungry.

For Everyone! This opportunity is perfect for families, working professionals, and retirees. It takes about one hour a month on average.

Ready to Make a Difference? Join us now, to sign up or for more information email us at: info@medfordfoodproject.com or call us at 541.210.8288 and someone will respond promptly.

Description

About us:

  • The Neighborhood Food Project started in Ashland ten years ago - expanded to the Medford area nine years ago. The Medford Food Project (MFP) includes: Medford, Central Point, and Jacksonville.
  • There are four other food projects in the Jackson County: Ashland, Medford, Phoenix, Talent, Eagle Point-plus Grant Pass in Josephine County
  • The Food Project is an all-volunteer organization. And it’s the largest grassroots volunteer organization that ever existed in this county.
  • There are more than 7000 volunteers participating in the Food Projects’ in Jackson County-including about 3000 in the MFP.
  • We have a green bag food donation pick up every even month - that’s only six times a year. The MFP volunteers collect about 32,000 pounds of food every other month.
  • To date we have collected over 2.5 million pounds of food in Jackson County-the equivalent of about 2 million meals, one green bag at a time. Neighbors sharing with neighbors. From people to give to the people who need the food. The food goes to 21 local food pantries-15 are in Medford.
  • We have proven the system works. Not only are we in the valley, but people have been hearing about what we are doing and other food projects have now sprung up in 50 communities-11 states and 3 other countries - Canada and Vietnam. There are now 16 FPs in Oregon
