Holiday Donations to the Oregon Food Bank
Did you know that most food donations for the Oregon Food Bank come from the food industry? Oregon Food Bank does a remarkable job of acquiring funds and food for their mission of feeding Oregon’s hungry.
Through the end of 2009, Oregon Growers will participate in this effort by donating a jar of our Marionberry Jam for every order over $50 made online. This is our way of helping the hungry during the holidays.
Oregon Food Bank works with a variety of organizations, including, Albertson’s, Nabisco, Nestle, Newman’s Own, Kraft and Hood River’s own Turtle Island Foods.
Oregon Food Bank is a nonprofit, charitable organization. It is the hub of the Oregon Food Bank Network, a statewide network of 20 regional food banks and 915 agencies and programs serving Oregon and Clark County, Washington.
Oregon Food Bank recovers food from farmers, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, individuals and government sources. It then delivers that food to 20 regional food banks covering OFB’s service area. Regional food banks distribute this food and additional resources from local donations to nonprofit programs serving low-income people in their communities.
To order from Oregon Growers go to www.oregongrowers.com. For every order over $50 a jar of Oregon Growers Marionberry Jam will be donated to Oregon Food Bank (any order over $50 is also eligible for free shipping). This offer will be extended through December 31, 2009. To make a donation directly to Oregon Food Bank please visit http://www.oregonfoodbank.org/make_a_difference/donate_funds/

(We’re excited about our inclusion in the American Express Small Business Forum about Holiday Gift Giving, however we need to make a couple of small corrections. We will donate a jar of Marionberry Jam for every order more than $50 and we will be donating a jar for every 100 new fans on Facebook. We hope this hasn’t caused any confusion and hope you’ll choose to Gift and Give with Oregon Growers this holiday season.)
