About Oregon Food Bank
Oregon Food Bank’s mission
To eliminate hunger and its root causes … because no one should be hungry.
What is Oregon Food Bank?
Oregon Food Bank is a nonprofit, charitable organization. Oregon Food Bank believes no one should be hungry. With sufficient public will and support of the entire community, we believe it is possible to eliminate hunger and its root causes.
Oregon Food Bank collects and distributes food through a network of four OFB branches and 16 independent regional food banks serving Oregon and southwest Washington.
The OFB Network helps nearly 1 in 5 households in Oregon and southwest Washington fend off hunger.
OFB also leads statewide efforts to increase resources for hungry families and to eliminate the root causes of hunger through advocacy, nutrition education, garden education and helping communities strengthen local food systems.
