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.

Volunteering Across America

“Everyone can make tweaks in their lives to help others in need,” says Jess Kurti, a Florida woman behind the Beast of Burden Challenge. Jess recently volunteered for two days with Oregon Food Bank. Why? Because she wants to draw attention to the issue of hunger in the U.S. by volunteering at every food bank that makes up the Feeding America Network. “I believe we can solve hunger in my lifetime,” adds Jess. We do too! Thank you Jess for giving us your time and taking on this challenge. You can follow her progress here.

RECALL ALERT - Frozen Italian Beans

July 16, 2015

Oregon Food Bank is alerting recipients of food through the Oregon Food Bank Network and associated partner agencies, pantries and community kitchens of a voluntary recall of frozen Italian beans. 

Food recipients should check their freezers for the packages of Italian beans with a white label and stating “distributed by Oregon Food Bank.” (see image below) 

To protect yourself, do not eat any of this product. Affected bags should be safely disposed of immediately. A single test result by a third party indicated the presence of Listeria monocytogenes which can be fatal. No illnesses have been reported.
