Both food and funds help Oregon Food Bank fight hunger.
Every $10 donation is the equivalent of 30 meals for individuals struggling with hunger. Monetary donations allow Oregon Food Bank to purchase bulk food to be repacked by volunteers. Because we make large, bulk purchases, our cost per pound of food is far lower than that of an individual buying food at retail prices.
Cash donations also keep our freezers running and our trucks on the road. They support our innovative programs to address the root causes of hunger through advocacy and education.
Food drives provide important variety and shelf stable goods to our network of partner agencies. These types of food are always in high demand.
