Oregon Food Bank works to eliminate hunger and its root causes... because no one should be hungry.
Bottom Line for Portland
Oregon Food Bank distributed more than 48 million pounds of food to its network of regional food banks and partner agencies, serving 740,000 people last year. Focusing on nutritious and fresh, 38 percent of the food distributed was fruits and vegetables, 16 percent meat and non-meat proteins, 4 percent dairy and 11 percent grains.
“My partner and I have to watch our food budget really closely. It’s hard during the last week of the month, when our food stamps are gone. We do our best, but we still need the food bank.”
