Oregon Food Bank

Oregon Food Bank (OFB) is the hub of a statewide network of 894 hunger-relief agencies serving Oregon and Clark County, Washington OFB recovers food from farms, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, individuals and government sources. It then distributes that food to 20 regional food banks across Oregon. In addition, OFB directly operates three regional food banks serving the Portland metro area and southeast Oregon. Those three centers distribute food to more than 300 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other programs helping low-income individuals in Clackamas, Clark, Multnomah, Washington, Malheur and Harney counties. OFB also works to eliminate the root causes of hunger through advocacy and education. http://www.oregonfoodbank.org/
