Corporate Involvement

What does it take to fight hunger? It takes volunteers from Wells Fargo filling boxes donated by Columbia Distributing with food contributed by Pacific Natural Foods, delivered throughout the state on a truck funded by Providence Health Systems. We're fortunate to be surrounded by examples of strong, multi-level corporate partnerships. Working together, companies throughout our region provide an essential service in the fight against hunger.

We work with thousands of companies in a variety of ways. We're always looking for new ways to involve companies, their employees and their customers in fighting hunger. Read below to learn about the many ways to get involved.

Cause-related marketing
