Happy New Year.

It is all over the news, there is an unprecedented level of hunger in Oregon.   The national magazine, Parade ran an article about hunger in Oregon.   No matter how you slice the data, it is true, food insecurity in Oregon is very high.

While we understand the demand is a constant and ever increasing, we have hope because of donors like you.  We have hope that we can help those facing food insecurity throughout the state of Oregon and Clark County, Wash.  

The months of November and December are very busy at Oregon Food Bank in terms of emergency food coming in and going out.  When we see the level of community participation in helping people who are hungry, we are humbled.  Our docks are busy receiving donations from the food industry as well as from individuals who organized food drives and want to see how many pounds their efforts raised and hear about the impact their efforts will have on the community.  The outflow is also encouraging because all our efforts to acquire and distribute emergency food is working.  Partner agencies picking up larger loads means more families will have the emergency food they so desperately need.

The holidays are a great time to reflect on the amazing community we live in.  We are all struggling and as a community we can help ...because no one should be hungry.

Thank you for your tireless efforts.
