Ways to give
Give with your community
Organize a local food drive
Bring your community together and donate food for neighbors facing food insecurity. Oregon Food Bank is no longer accepting individual food donations, but you can create a local food drive and donate food directly to the organizations providing meals in our community. Whether you’ve organized a food drive before or you’re just getting started, download our Food Drive Toolkit to learn what’s new and how to help.
Food donations help provide nutritious meals to neighbors facing food insecurity. Oregon Food Bank is only accepting food donations from partners in the food industry at this time.
Food industry partners: Contact us for guidance and information on donating food.
Grocery partners: Contact us to learn more about our Fresh Alliance program. Fresh Alliance connects grocery stores with local Oregon Food Bank partners to donate surplus food.
Individuals and non-food businesses: Although we’re no longer taking food donations from the public or businesses outside of the food industry, you can contact your local food pantry or meal site to see if they’re taking donations.
Give to our partners working for food justice
Oregon Food Bank is part of a network of organizations and partners working to dismantle unfair systems and support opportunities for all of us to access food, employment, education, housing, health care and more. Find out how you can support our allies throughout Oregon and southwest Washington:
