Oregon Food Bank works to eliminate hunger and its root causes ... because no one should be hungry.

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.

Food is Community

Corporate Donor
of the Month

Regence BlueCross Blue Shield of Oregon


Thank you, Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon for engaging in hunger relief by donating food, time and money to our collective community effort. Regence employees provided 1,355 meals through a food drive and volunteered a total of 359 hours repacking food. 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.

Food Donor of the Year Ron LeFore Family Farms

Members of the LeFore family have worked the soil for generations. It all began when two brothers left their fruit stands in the Ukraine to try farming in America. For many years, Ron LeFore Family Farms have quietly donated to food banks throughout the Feeding America network. They produce and pack some of the Northwest’s finest apples. Within their commercial packing lines there is a “food bank” category. This high quality product will go to families in need throughout the Pacific Northwest. In spite of a less than average harvest in 2013, Ron LeFore Family Farms donated 200,000 pounds of apples.
