despite the Northwest region's long growing season and its attendant prolific food supply – food insecurity (aka, HUNGER) remains a reality for many families throughout the state. each month 194,000 oregonians will eat meals from an emergency food box – prepared by the Oregon Food Bank. this food relief organization recovers food from wholesalers, manufacturers, individuals, retailers and government sources and redistributes it to 20 regional food banks in Oregon and Clark County in Washington.

join in their efforts either by volunteering to collect, pack or distribute food; or donate money – each dollar Oregon Food Bank receives means 6 pounds of food will make its way through its food distribution program to those most in need.
