In the Pacific Northwest, many members of our community experience food insecurity. In Oregon, nearly 1 in 5 people do not know where their next meal comes from. With your support, we can make a difference in our community.
OnPoint members can support Oregon Food Bank’s mission to eliminate hunger and its root causes by participating in our Refer a Friend campaign now through March 31, 2022*. During the campaign, members can invite friends, family members and business associates to become new OnPoint members, with an extra bonus being directed toward Oregon Food Bank. For each person who joins, we’ll give both the current and new member $50 each and make a $50 donation to Oregon Food Bank. Oregon Food Bank will use the donations to further their efforts in our region—which makes right now a great time to tell your friends and family about your experience as an OnPoint member!
The Oregon Food Bank served more than one million people in 2021 and 1.7 million people in 2020—a sharp increase from the 856,000 served in 2019, reflecting a high degree of need that the food bank is helping to meet. Oregon Food Bank is part of a statewide network of 21 regional food banks, and more than 1,400 programs and partners that help our neighbors facing food insecurity across Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Since its founding in 1982, the Oregon Food Bank has worked to cultivate a community-led network of people fighting hunger at every level, addressing both the immediate need for food distribution and the promotion of sustainable, longer-term solutions. Oregon Food Bank is providing food today, as well as advocating for a future where there is food for everyone.
This advocacy work includes:
- Urging lawmakers to make food a priority by investing in policies and programs that reduce hunger and build healthy communities.
- Committing to combating systems and behavior which undercut food security.
- Actively cultivating new strategies for underserved communities and seeking to engage people facing hunger in both long-term solutions and day-to-day program delivery.
OFB advances its mission through food distribution; community, business, and government partnerships; legislative advocacy; and equity work.
