In recent years, poverty levels and unemployment have risen to record high levels, leaving many individuals and families without the means to procure nutritious food. Those in dire need are often faced with the difficult choice between buying food and paying for other life necessities, such as housing and electricity.
Oregon Food Bank seeks to address the problem of hunger through local advocacy and by distributing food to relief agencies such as food banks, soup kitchens, and shelters in Oregon and Clark County, Washington. The organization's network of partner agencies then provides that food directly to people in need. Oregon Food Bank obtains nutritious fare through a combination of bulk purchases and donations. As the need for hunger relief has increased during the last few years, so has the number of Oregonians and Washingtonians whom Oregon Food Bank serves.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Oregon Food Bank provide partner agencies with food to distribute to hungry families. If G-Team members raise $500, 2,000 pounds of food––or about 1,500 meals—will be dispensed to those who are hungry. Each additional $10 donation will allow Oregon Food Bank to distribute 40 pounds of food—the equivalent of about 30 meals—throughout their network.
