To meet the growing need, Oregon Food Bank needs to grow as well. We are purchasing a warehouse in Washington County- called Oregon Food Bank West.
This new facility will allow us to engage more volunteers and capture new sources of food. A portion of the food captured at this new facility will be made available for statewide distribution. Agencies and community leaders are thrilled with this site as the new home of Oregon Food Bank West. The facility will more than double our current home which will equal more food for hungry families, not to mention the improved dock access, safety and streamlined pick-up procedures for agencies.
Everyone will benefit from this new facility. Volunteers will have a state of the art volunteer action center. Agencies and clients will benefit from an increased food supply and streamlined distribution system.
OFB West will be a permanent processing, distribution, education and community meeting facility- a model of food banking for the 21st century. A place where neighbors gather to fight hunger and feed hope.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
