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.
