This project aims to increase the supply of nutrient rich foods for approximately 960 relief agencies throughout the Oregon Food Bank Network.


Requests for emergency food remain high. Oregon has been slow to recover from the economic downturn that began in 2008. One in five Oregonians are food insecure, which means they skip meals or reduce their food intake to make ends meet. All monies will be used to buy nutrient packed food for the Oregon Food Bank Network because no one should be hungry.


If we can purchase and distribute nutrient rich foods, ie. peanut butter and tuna, throughout the network's 960 local partner agencies, we can increase the number of people who are food secure.

Long-Term Impact

People who are hungry can't excel at work, as parents or as students. Emergency food is an income supplement that frees up scarce resources to cover more of life's basic necessities.
