Linn Benton Food Share is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization of Community Services Consortium (CSC), the public, nonprofit community action agency providing multiple services to low-income people across Linn, Benton and Lincoln counties.
As the regional food bank for Linn and Benton counties since 1981, Food Share has been committed to fulfilling our goal that "Everybody Eats." With requests for emergency food help at an all-time high, we work hard to develop and strengthen food resources for our communities.
Linn Benton Food Share collects, stores, and distributes food; collaborates with 74 member agencies to bring food directly to those who need it most; directs 14 volunteer, nonprofit gleaning groups made up of over 4,800 low-income individuals; and coordinates our volunteers,who put in over 14,000 hours per year at Food Share alone and make it possible for us to handle the millions of pounds of food we distribute each year.
Linn Benton Food Share is a participating member of the Oregon Food Bank and follows all regulations and requirements for food safety, membership, and required monitoring. As a part of monitoring, onsite visits are conducted of all member groups annually. These monitoring visits include safety inspections, procedural reviews, and evaluations of the effectiveness of program delivery.
