2016 Portland-Salem Metro-Wide Underway!
9th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive
Extended Through Dec 29th In Some Areas! Fighting Hunger Here in Oregon!

The 9th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive is going strong and extended in some areas until December 29, 2016 in some areas. Check your local locations for more information. The goal of this annual event is to fight hunger on a community-wide scale. You can help by donating canned goods and non-perishable food items at any participating business throughout the Portland & Salem Metro areas.


With help and support from the Portland & Salem communities, the Great Holiday Food Drive has raised the equivalent of OVER 70,000 lbs of food for the hungry here in the Portland-Salem Metro area of Oregon during its first eight years of operation.

The food banks are always short on food during the holiday season, and need to replenish supplies, regardless of economic situations and hardships.

You can help this Holiday Season by donating canned food and non-perishable items to feed the needy and raise awareness for the Oregon Food Bank Network.
