Increase Food Security in Oregon

Happy New Year!

Feeding hungry kids in Oregon

We surpassed the funding goal, to date!  

Thank you for supporting the Increase Food Security project.  We have been able to purchase and distribute hundreds of thousands of pounds of food through your generous donations and company match efforts.  According to our donation page we met and exceeded our fundraising project goal in December 2011!  While this is great news, the need for emergency food continues to grow and there are so many loyal supporters that we didn't want this project to close and miss out on the relationship we are building.

Oregon Food Bank established our partnership with GlobalGiving in 2008 and launched this project in early 2009.  We had no idea what type of interest the project would attract so our goal was somewhat nebulous.  As momentum increased, we increased our goal…. A lot.  We can hardly believe it but we were able to surpass the lofty $75,000 goal by December 2011.   Again, Thank you!  Rather than closing the project and making a note that it is fully funded, we are raising our goal and keeping the project, which is the core of our mission, alive and on your radar.

Our project goal for 2012 is to secure an additional $50,000.00 to increase food security in Oregon.  Through our diverse network on GlobalGiving, we are confident we can achieve this lofty goal.

Thank you for all your support and interest in Oregon Food Bank.
