New Tillamook Facility

Oregon Food Bank’s branch in Tillamook County has a new name and will soon have a new address.

To clarify its relationship to Oregon Food Bank, The Regional Food Bank of Tillamook County has changed its name to Oregon Food Bank – Tillamook County Services and will soon move from 2105 4th Street to 1760 Wilson River Loop, Tillamook.

“After years of searching for a new facility, Oregon Food Bank has signed a five-year lease for a 6,000 square-foot warehouse for Oregon Food Bank – Tillamook County Services,” announced Starr Yurkewycz, branches manager, Oregon Food Bank.

“The new location will help us better serve Tillamook County,” said Cari Clifton, branch manager, OFB – Tillamook County Services. “The new warehouse doubles our current space. That means we can dramatically increase the size of our freezer and cooler and distribute more nutritious fresh and frozen food to people who are hungry in Tillamook County. The additional space also allows us to welcome more volunteers to help repack food.”

Oregon Food Bank – Tillamook County Services will begin moving into its new facility in August and expects to be fully operational by Oct. 1, 2011. See below for photos of the new and old facilities.
