Recently, AWARE Food Bank in Woodburn suffered a devastating fire that will close the building for the foreseeable future. Thankfully the building was empty at the time and nobody was hurt, but the damage is extensive and a considerable amount of food was lost.

AWARE is one of the largest pantries in the Food Share partner network and is the primary source of food relief in the Woodburn area. Last year alone, AWARE distributed 1.3 million pounds of food, reaching over 1,500 families every month.

We are committed to continuing to serve the community with minimal disruptions, but we need your help!

Please check out the details below and information on how to get started:
