The entire world knows the last couple years have affected everyone, from every walk of life, regardless of economic stature around the world! The need for food donations continues to set records dating back to the Great Depression!
Historically we have always had numerous Donation Locations around the Portland-Salem Metro areas. However, for the second year in a row, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are again promoting online donations to observe safety and social distancing needs.
We appreciate your help and participation in this year's event!
