The amount of food that ONE volunteers recently packed for the hungry in Oregon and Southwest Washington in just 1.5 hours! In fact, our volunteer efforts at the Oregon Food Bank resulted in net output of 100 pounds of food per volunteer.
ONE members fight hunger globally every day. They are well aware of the importance of preserving cost-effective, results-driven programs that fight the root causes of world hunger. Through the Oregon Food Bank effort, we were able to achieve this on a local level.
As a local non-profit, the Oregon Food Bank has been fighting hunger in Oregon and Clark County, Washington, for more than 30 years. The Oregon Food Bank is a nonprofit, charitable organization that works holistically to help low-income families alleviate hunger. ONE developed a partnership with the Oregon Food Bank in the fall of 2010, and is proud to support this renowned organization.
Thank you to all of our volunteers for providing critical assistance to recipients of the Oregon Food Bank!
