About Oregon Food Bank
Oregon Food Bank believes no one should be hungry. With sufficient public will and support of the entire community, we believe it is possible to eliminate hunger and its root causes.

Since 1982, Oregon Food Bank has been leading the fight against hunger in Oregon and Clark County, Wash., by collecting and distributing food through a network of four OFB branches and 16 independent regional food banks.
The OFB Network helps nearly 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 through advocacy, nutrition education, garden education and helping communities strengthen local food systems.

About Cooking Matters
Cooking Matters™, a program of Share Our Strength, is a national program that empowers families at risk of hunger with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make healthy, delicious and affordable meals. Cooking Matters™ is nationally sponsored by the ConAgra Foods® Foundation and Walmart. For more information, visit www.cookingmatters.org.
