Mission Statement

Our mission To eliminate hunger and its root causes ... because no one should be hungry.

Description

Oregon Food Bank takes a holistic approach to ending hunger by bringing our community together to provide food, education and hope to our neighbors in need.

We provide emergency food to people who are hungry through a cooperative statewide network of hunger-relief agencies, helping 1 in 5 households fend off hunger. OFB also leads statewide efforts to increase resources for hungry families and to eliminate the root causes of hunger by advocating for fair public policies, strengthening community food systems and providing nutrition and garden education to help people become more self-sufficient and resourceful.

Would you recommend Oregon Food Bank?

by Mary Lou L. (2015-09-10 14:31:20.0)
Food insecurity is a reality for too many in our community and, even with the supposed economic recovery, the need remains. If you want to help AND want a flexible volunteer opportunity, Oregon Food Bank is your answer. I spend 3 hours every Wednesday afternoon helping to sort through fresh produce and "cooler items" from area grocers. This formerly wasted food is then distributed to the needy. We even compost food that cannot go forward to our pantries. All good! And if you need to be gone, no problem! Volunteers provide necessary (but mentally untaxing) labor and can go on vacation with no guilt (and without needing to find a substitute)! There are several of us "regulars," so this opportunity provides nice camaraderie as well. I highly recommend this volunteer opportunity with the Oregon Food Bank, an outstanding organization.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
