The Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival not only brings the best blues artists to Portland, it is Oregon Food Bank's major fundraiser.
Oregon Food Bank is the hub of a statewide network of close to 947 partner agencies and programs serving Oregon and Clark County, Wash. Oregon Food Bank recovers food from farms, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, individuals and government sources.
It distributes that food to 20 regional food banks across Oregon. Sixteen of those regional food banks are independent, nonprofit agencies. Oregon Food Bank directly operates the four regional food banks serving the Portland metro area, southeast Oregon and Tillamook. Those four centers distribute food to 340 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other programs helping low-income individuals in Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, Clark, Harney, Malheur and Tillamook.
Oregon Food Bank also works to eliminate the root causes of hunger through advocacy and public education.
