Corporate Groups

Step three: Learn more and sign up.

Build camaraderie, foster a strong team environment and make a difference in the community by scheduling your corporate group to volunteer at Oregon Food Bank. From bagging apples to collecting canned food at the Waterfront Blues Festival, corporate groups help us collect and process millions of pounds of food each year.  We’re grateful for your support!

Corporate Teambuilding Packages

Consider a corporate donation to cover the cost of food packed in your volunteer shift. Our program offers special amenities such as priority scheduling, corporate acknowledgement on food packaging, and more. For more info, contact James Dillard at

We have five different types of projects for groups. Read below for descriptions and click the button to sign up.
