LINN BENTON FOOD SHARE

WHO WE ARE

Linn Benton Food Share is a non-profit food bank that was established in 1980 to help feed hungry people in Linn and Benton counties. We gather, transport, store and distribute nearly 5 million pounds of food each year to 74 non-profit agencies. These agencies include food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, day-care centers, shelter homes and gleaning groups.

WHY WE ARE NEEDED

Last year food pantries distributed an average of 3,625 boxes of emergency food to over 12,300 people each month in our two-county area. Soup kitchens and emergency shelters served an additional 21,100 meals each month. Overall, our clients constitute nearly one-fifth of the population in Linn and Benton counties. They are our neighbors, seniors on fixed incomes, parents trying to provide for their families on the minimum wage, unemployed persons, or families hit with high medical bills and no health insurance.
