2016 Portland-Salem Metro-Wide Starting Soon . . .
9th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive
December 5 - 21, 2016! Fighting Hunger Here in Oregon!


Marion Polk Food Share

The Annual Great Holiday Food Drive has raised over 68,690 lbs of food between 2001 and 2008 before its hiatus from 2009 through 2015.

However, planning is now underway for the return of the annual event this December 5 through December 21, 2016. The goal of this annual event is to fight hunger on a community-wide scale. You can help by donating canned goods and non-perishable food items at any participating business throughout the Portland & Salem Metro areas.


With help and support from the Portland & Salem communities, the Great Holiday Food Drive has raised the equivalent of nearly 70,000 lbs of food for the hungry here in the Portland-Salem Metro area of Oregon during its first eight years of operation.

The food banks are always short on food during the holiday season regardless of economic situations and hardships. However, due to some of the toughest financial times our country has seen in decades, food shortages are at epidemic proportions.

You can help this Holiday Season by donating canned food and non-perishable items to feed the needy and raise awareness for the Oregon Food Bank Network and the Marion Polk Food Share.
