OFB works with a cooperative, statewide network of partner agencies to distribute emergency food to hungry families. We fight hunger's root causes through public policy advocacy, nutrition and garden education and work to strengthen community food systems.

of the Month

In addition, Regence and their employees made substantial financial contributions to Oregon Food Bank. These elements alone established a position in the coveted Corporate Donor of the Month program, however, there is a deeper thread that entwines Regence and Oregon Food Bank that bears mention.
