Repacking on National Day of Service
Repacking on National Day of Service

On Monday, January 20th, a record-breaking number of volunteers - almost 700 - honored Martin Luther King Jr. with a Day of Service by repacking food and sorting food-drive donations at two Oregon Food Bank facilities. Volunteers processed over 100,000 pounds of food – equivalent to more than 83,000 meals, and as much as the two facilities process in a regular work week. None of this would be possible without your donations.

In answer to Dr. King’s famous call to action – "Life’s most persistent and urgent question is ‘What are you doing for others?’" – Congress passed this sanctioned Day of Service challenging Americans to transform the King Holiday into a day of citizen action.

"We are grateful for all the volunteers giving their time in the spirit of service embodied by Dr. King. Together we can make significant strides toward eliminating hunger in Oregon," said Sarah Schirmer, Oregon Food Bank Corporate and Foundation Relations Developer.

Each dollar you donate provides OFB the power to source and distribute 3 full meals to people in Oregon and SW Washington who are struggling with the devastating effects of hunger. Thank you for making a huge impact in the fight against hunger.
