Nourish Every Body.
It’s what Pacific values most. Their foods are a celebration of nature’s goodness – simple ingredients that nourish families, partnerships with area food banks that enrich communities and sustainable practices that cultivate a healthier environment. When all is nourished, a brighter world can begin to take shape.

Thank you Bank of America, employees, customers, and friends!
Bank of America plays an integral role in hunger relief.
Nationally through its’ partnership with Feeding America, Bank of America offered a 2 : 1 match for donations made online and through their ATMs. Last year these efforts provided an additional 66,000 meals for the Oregon Food Bank Network!
Locally, Bank of America employees support the mission in several ways. They donate their time (over 700 volunteer hours in FY 2014), their financial resources through company sponsorship, collaborative partnerships in the community, employee giving, Board service, as well as community food drives.

Ford Motor Company Fund
It is said that Henry Ford never forgot the common man. The Ford Motor Company Fund honors this legacy by building strong communities through support for basic needs to our neighbors in need. In just two years, the Ford Motor Company Fund has provided significant funding and systematically worked to engage every single Ford dealership in the Pacific Northwest to actively fight childhood hunger in the local community. They plan to unleash the same horsepower to fight the root causes of hunger. We appreciate their extraordinary commitment and exceptional engagement.
