Summary

Emergency food box (EFB) distribution continues to rise in Oregon and Clark County, Wash. On average, 270,000 people eat from an EFB each month. A typical EFB contains a three-to-five day supply of groceries.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Hunger is an income issue. Economic challenges in Oregon and Clark County, Wash. have many people seeking emergency food assistance through the 945 partner agencies we serve. More than 270,000 people per month eat from an emergency food box. 33% of those receiving food are children. Unemployment forces more people to seek emergency food and we need your help to ensure that those in need receive assistance ... because no one should be hungry.

How will this project solve this problem?

Emergency Food Boxes are just one tool that Oregon Food Bank uses to fulfill it's mission: To eliminate hunger and its root causes. With the continual rise in need, your donation will allow OFB to provide emergency food to people in Oregon and Clark County, Wash.

Potential Long Term Impact

Statistics reveal that on average, households served turn to pantries less than four times a year and the number of new households continues to rise. Hunger is an economic issue. By supporting our efforts, we can help all those in need of food.
