At Oregon Food Bank, we hold people experiencing hunger at the center of everything we do — and we are incredibly grateful for the countless ways our volunteer community shows up to help end hunger for good!
We know there are many options to get involved in important issues and causes throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington. We are incredibly grateful to be in community with thousands of neighbors who spend their time and energy ensuring everyone has access to the essential resources we need to thrive.
Over the past year, Oregon Food Bank volunteers:
Supported over 10,000 community-based food distribution events
Took action more than 7,000 times to advance anti-hunger policy change — helping to pass our entire 2022 legislative agenda
Made real progress on many root causes of hunger identified by our community — from racial justice and immigrant rights, to housing and economic insecurity
Of course, we appreciate these contributions every day, but National Volunteer Week (April 17-23) is a special time to celebrate all the supporters who make it possible to carry out our critical mission. Please join volunteer coordinators Emma Tarbath and Juan Soto — and all of us on the Oregon Food Bank Team — in celebrating our amazing volunteer community!
