Fighting Hunger in the Midst of Plenty
For more than 30 years, Linn Benton Food Share has been feeding Linn and Benton counties, because we are committed to the idea that no one goes hungry in the two-county area we serve. In order to efficiently move food to those in need, we work closely with local nonprofit groups throughout Linn and Benton counties.
Through this network of local partner agencies—emergency shelters and food pantries, soup kitchens, child and senior care centers, shelter homes, and gleaning groups—we attempt to reach every person in our area who cannot find enough resources to adequately feed themselves or their families. Last year Food Share distributed 5.4 million pounds of food to our 74 member agencies.
With our vision that “Everybody Eats,” Linn Benton Food Share supports the goals of the Oregon Food Bank Network to eliminate hunger and its root causes in our region. We do this by providing needed food today and nutrition education for better health tomorrow.

What You Can Do...
The most effective way you can help eliminate hunger is to donate to Food Share. Transporting, storing, repackaging and distributing food all takes money. Each tax deductible dollar donated to Food Share allows us to distribute up to 15 pounds of food.
