Challenge

More than 860,000 people rely on the Oregon Food Bank Network each year - and food assistance needs rise each day with the widening reach of COVID-19. With schools closed and local businesses shuttered, we expect tens-of-thousands of additional families will turn to their local food pantries, many for the first time.

Solution

Oregon Food Bank is ready to meet the evolving needs of our community head-on. We're shifting our food sourcing and distribution to keep as much nutritious food flowing as possible statewide. We're adjusting staffing and volunteer allocations to better support local food assistance sites. And we're working with federal, state and local officials to remove barriers to food access and reach people facing hunger wherever they may be.

Long-Term Impact

As our communities deal with the outbreak of COVID-19, commonly called Coronavirus, Oregon Food Bank is closely monitoring the situation and building contingency plans to keep food moving to partner community food programs and Free Food Markets.
