LINN BENTON FOOD SHARE

WHO WE ARE

Linn Benton Food Share, established in 1980, is the non-profit Regional Food Bank in the Oregon Food Bank Network that serves Linn and Benton counties. We gather, purchase, store, transport and distribute over 5 million pounds of food each year to our network of local non-profit agencies. These agencies include food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, childcare centers, shelter homes and gleaning groups.

WHY WE ARE NEEDED

Last year food pantries distributed 47,199 emergency food boxes in our two-county area. Soup kitchens and emergency shelters served an additional 26,000 meals each month. Overall, our clients constitute approximately 1/5 of the population in Linn and Benton counties. They are our neighbors, seniors on fixed incomes, parents trying to provide for their families, unemployed or underemployed workers, or families and individuals faced with high medical bills.
