Oregon Food Bank Mission: To eliminate hunger and its root causes … because no one should be hungry.

Oregon Food Bank takes a holistic approach to ending hunger by bringing our community together to provide food, education and hope to our neighbors in need.

Oregon Food Bank provides emergency food to people who are hungry through a cooperative statewide network of hunger-relief agencies, helping 1 in 5 households fend off hunger. OFB also leads statewide efforts to increase resources for hungry families and to eliminate the root causes of hunger by advocating for fair public policies, strengthening community food systems and providing nutrition and garden education to help people become more self-sufficient and resourceful

Understanding Hunger

Hunger is an income issue.

Growing levels of long-term unemployment have forced more and more people to seek emergency food assistance.

More than 73 percent of households receiving emergency food report incomes below the federal poverty level – $22,050 for a family of four.

Who is hungry and why?

Record numbers access emergency food

As a result of growing levels of long-term unemployment, 270,000 people per month eat meals from emergency food boxes. Of those, 92,000 are children. For the second year in a row, Oregon Food Bank distributed more than 1 million emergency food boxes. Since the beginning of the Great Recession in 2008, emergency food box distribution has increased 41 percent.

Thank you for your support!
