2016 Portland-Salem Metro-Wide
9th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive
December 5th - 21st, 2016!
Grand 9 Year Total Raised 69,106 LBS

The 9th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive was a great year in that we were able to revitalize the annual event, and generate awareness and raise some food for those in need here in Oregon! This was by no means a record year with only 416 lbs, nor even came close to tying any records we set in the past; but as a whole, we're excited to be apart of raising close to 70,000 lbs of food in our 9 year history.

Regardless of records, it was a great event in which many local businesses were able to come together, and fight hunger on a community-wide scale. As always, thanks go out to all participants who helped us fight empty warehouses throughout Oregon and raise food and awareness for Oregon Food Bank and the Marion Polk Food Share.

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

Thanks to all those who helped during the 2016 Holiday Season by donating canned food and non-perishable items to feed the needy and raise awareness for the Oregon Food Bank Network.
