KGW Great Food Drive celebrates 10 years of supporting the Oregon Food Bank Network

March 1, 2014
Topics:
With an ambitious goal of 600,000 pounds the KGW Great Food Drive kicked off its 10th year on March 1. Along with Tillamook Cheese, U.S. Bank, participating Toyota dealers and participating Fred Meyer stores, KGW will collect food and cash donations to support the Oregon Food Bank Network. 

Throughout the month of March you can contribute in many ways:
  • Donate funds online
  • Drop off nonperishable food or cash at any participating U.S. Bank branch or at the KGW NewsChannel 8 main studio at 1501 SW Jefferson in downtown Portland.
  • Purchase Tillamook cheese. Tillamook Cheese will donate part of the proceeds from every pound of cheese purchased during the month in Oregon and Clark County, Washington.
  • Donate 10 or more cans of food at any participating local Toyota dealer and receive $10 off your parts and service visit. 
  • Let Fred Meyer do the shopping. Donate $10 during checkout at participating stores.

Follow the progress at the KGW Great Food Drive page.

Food collected through the drive will be distributed through the Oregon Food Bank Network’s regional food banks serving those in need in Oregon and Southwest Washington.
