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!
