Our mission: To eliminate hunger and its root causes ... because no one should be hungry.
Oregon Food Bank takes a holistic approach to ending hunger by bringing our community together to provide food, education and hope to our neighbors in need.
We provide emergency food to people who are hungry through a cooperative statewide network of hunger-relief agencies, helping 1 in 5 households fend off hunger. OFB also leads statewide efforts to increase resources for hungry families and to eliminate the root causes of hunger by advocating for fair public policies, strengthening community food systems and providing nutrition and garden education to help people become more self-sufficient and resourceful.
Oregon Food Bank's Flow of Food
Through partnerships with our food and fund donors, and the strategic infrastructure of our distribution systems, OFB quickly and efficiently moves critically needed food and resources throughout our region.
We're effective and efficient. More than 94 cents of every dollar donated to Oregon Food Bank goes directly to fighting hunger.
We're fair and equitable. Oregon Food Bank distributes food donations throughout the Oregon and Clark County, Wash., based on an allocation system that takes each area's population and poverty statistics into account.
We're innovative. OFB's Fresh Alliance program provides nutritious, perishable food, like meat, milk and dairy, to people who are hungry statewide. Since its inception, the program has kept 16-million pounds of food from being wasted and has become a national model.
We're part of a national network. Oregon Food Bank is a member of Feeding America's national food bank network.
We're proud to be a member of the community. We couldn't do the work we do without tremendous support, from donors, to volunteers, to corporate partners. Thank you!
