Community Programs

Our goal is to ensure that people have equitable access to the type of food assistance they need — when and where they need it.

These programs are open to the general public and do not require income or identification to participate.

Free Food Market / Mercado de Alimentos Gratuitos

Our Free Food Market (formerly known as Harvest Share or Community Basket) is a low barrier program that offers a free, nutritious supply of fresh produce and pantry staples to low-income individuals and families. Each household receives approximately 45 pounds of healthy food – primarily produce, as well as staples like eggs, beans, whole grains, milk, and vegetable oil.

Free Food Market operates in 33 locations across the Portland metro area, usually run in partnership with non-profit and community-led organizations.

If you are interested in partnering with Oregon Food Bank to bring a Free Food Market to your community, contact Rob Rutledge-Shryock at rrshryock@oregonfoodbank.org.

Mobile Pantries

Our Mobile Pantry program provides a 3 to 5 day supply of groceries to low-income, underserved communities where regular access to food assistance is limited. The program targets remote geographic communities and underserved demographic groups. Each household receives a well balanced mix of approximately 60 pounds of food consisting of fresh produce, pantry staples, meats and dairy.
