Thank you!

Thanks to generous community support, we are able to Fight hunger. Feed hope.

Oregon Food Bank recently completed an $8.3 million capital campaign to create OFB West, a permanent food bank facility dedicated to fighting hunger in Washington County and across Oregon.

"We are deeply grateful for the foresight of OFB's board of directors, the leadership of the OFB West capital campaign cabinet and the generosity of our donors and the community for making Oregon Food Bank West a reality," said Rachel Bristol, CEO, Oregon Food Bank.

  • OFB West's renovated 35,000-square-foot Maybelle Clark Macdonald Warehouse doubles the storage capacity in Washington County for emergency food.
  • The M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Perishable Repack Room triples OFB's capacity to safely sort and repack fresh and frozen foods with the help of hundreds of volunteers.
  • That space along with the Bob Fisher Volunteer Action Center enables OFB West to triple the number of volunteers engaged in the fight against hunger in Washington County.

Thank you for your generous support.  The OFB West capital campaign is complete!
