Mission/
Specific Program Goals:
The mission of FOOD for Lane County is to eliminate hunger by creating access to food. We accomplish this by soliciting, collecting, rescuing, growing, preparing and packaging food for distribution through a network of social service agencies and programs; and through public awareness, education and community advocacy. FOOD for Lane County is the regional food bank serving all of Lane County, Oregon. As the second largest food bank in the state, FOOD for Lane County finds creative solutions to hunger and its root causes. We believe a responsive food bank includes programs that help people help themselves. Food banking also requires the participation of the whole community.
