Volunteering at the Oregon Food Bank

Last week, we powered-down our computers, put away our drawings and spent the evening volunteering at the Oregon Food Bank with friends and family. As the smell of onions wafted through the air, we checked in, donned hairnets, gloves and aprons, and along with several other eager volunteers, we bagged thousands of pounds of red onions for Oregon Food Bank pantries around the region. It was a fun activity and easy for all ages to help.oregonfoodbankYou might be surprised to learn that 1 in 5 people in Oregon and Southwest Washington are food insecure, and the Oregon Food Bank helps supply food to 270,000 people in an average month. Needless to say, help is always welcome. We will return to the Oregon Food Bank to volunteer again, as we have in years past. No matter how busy life is, we must always find time to lend a hand.
