Statewide Network

Oregon Food Bank is the coordinating agency for a statewide network of 21 Regional Food Banks and more than 1,400 food assistance sites providing food to people experiencing hunger throughout Oregon and Clark County, Washington. Through Network collaboration we are able to leverage our collective resources, equitably distribute food and enhance our capacity to serve food insecure people throughout our service area.

Food is acquired through donations from the food industry, individuals, local institutions and national partners of Feeding America, as well as federal allocations of USDA commodities. A system based on current poverty and unemployment rates ensures that food is equitably distributed throughout the Statewide Network according to need.

Regional Food Banks working together

Our statewide service delivery model is unique among the Feeding America national network of food banks. We integrate with 4 Oregon Food Bank branches and 17 regional food banks across Oregon and Clark County, Washington.

These 21 Regional Food Banks come together as a formal network to collaborate, share resources and problem solve in order to most effectively and equitably serve our neighbors in need.

There are incredible feats of logistics necessary to keep the system running day in and day out, as well as many unsung heroes, both paid and volunteer, throughout the Network, who keep our neighbors fed.

Our unique statewide service distribution model includes 21 Regional Food Banks in Oregon and Clark County, Washington.
