Our Work

Oregon Food Bank distributes emergency food to hunger-relief agencies throughout Oregon and Clark County, Wash. And that's just the beginning.

  • Metro and Statewide Services teams provide technical assistance and training to hunger-relief agencies.
  • Our Network Support Fund matches local donations to help agencies build capacity to better serve people who are hungry.
  • Our innovative Fresh Alliance program collects and distributes nutritious, perishable foods for people who are hungry. 
  • Education programs teach low-income participants to grow food from seed and to stretch food dollars while cooking healthy meals.
  • Community organizing work through FEAST (Food, Education, Agriculture Solutions Together) workshops and other partnerships help communities build stronger and more equitable local food systems.
  • And our Advocacy team works to find long-term, public-policy solutions that benefit people with low incomes.

How funds are used

Your generous donations keep our trucks on the road delivering food statewide, our freezers running and our warehouse operating. Donations allow us to supplement food donations with large food purchases to meet increasing need. We also use funds to deliver programs that address the root causes of hunger through advocacy and education. More than Ninety-four cents of every dollar donated goes to directly to fighting hunger.  Donate now
