A Visit to the Oregon Food Bank
The Oregon Food Bank distributes emergency food to hunger-relief agencies throughout Oregon and Clark County through a network of four OFB branches and 16 independent regional food banks. The OFB Network helps nearly 1 in 5 households fend off hunger. OFB also leads statewide efforts to increase resources for hungry families and to eliminate the root causes of hunger through advocacy, nutrition education, garden education, and helping communities strengthen local food systems.
KBOO reporter Ross Freeman Levin visited the WashMetro Dock at Oregon Food Bank to talk to volunteers and staff about their work and hunger in Oregon.
