PGE logo

PGE works hard to keep Oregon a great place to live, and they reflect our customers’ values through our environmental initiatives and community involvement. Oregon Food Bank has long partnered with PGE and their employees to help eliminate hunger and its root causes.  Their dedication to our efforts earns them a top spot as Corporate Donor of the Month-November!
 
This is a partnership where both the company and the employees are engaged in the mission.  
 
PGE Foundation dedicated funds to our Education and Teaching Programs.  Their funds allowed Oregon Food Bank to bring a Bilingual Garden Education Outreach Specialist to OFB to help translate the curricula as well as develop a culturally competent volunteer Garden Educator Training manual and training piece for bilingual educators. Funds were also directed to Cooking Matters classes within PGE's service territory which meant that a Cooking Matters Class was offered in Boardman, Oregon, 
 
PGE employees dedicated over 600 hours of volunteer service as well as  500 meals through food drive efforts.  PGE employees also generously support Oregon Food Bank through their annual Employee Giving Campaign.  
 
The support is inspirational and we could not do what we do without Companies like PGE.  Thank you from all of us at Oregon Food Bank!
