Resources, Information & Action to #EmergeStronger in the Wake of COVID-19

Updated April 1, 2020

The coronavirus has closed schools and community centers, creating a gap in meals for countless kids. Seniors, people with chronic conditions and those with compromised immune systems face higher risks in public spaces — forcing many to remain at home. At Oregon Food Bank, we are committed first and foremost to the health and safety of our community — to our clients, volunteers, staff and the broader foodstream. And we’re taking aggressive steps to ensure well-being and meet the evolving needs of people facing hunger at this time.

Learn more about what Oregon Food Bank is doing to ensure we #EmergeStronger.

Food is available to all who need it.

Many of our 1,400+ partner pantries and food assistance sites across Oregon and Southwest Washington remain open — with increased cleaning and service updates to help minimize contact among groups of people. We’re updating hours and availability daily, but please call ahead before visiting the agency closest to you.

We have the opportunity to #EmergeStronger as we rebuild together. Help create a future where all Oregonians — in rural and urban communities alike — have food, healthcare, housing and economic security.
Federal resources are critical when responding to a crisis — and those resources largely depend on the census. Despite social distancing, it's incredibly important that all our communities are counted!
