2008 Portland-Salem Metro-Wide 8th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive
Now Through December 12th, 2008! Fighting Hunger Here in Oregon!


Marion Polk Food Share

The 8th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive is now underway. 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.


Last year with help and support from the Portland & Salem communities, the Great Holiday Food Drive raised the equivalent of 11,739 lbs of food for the hungry here in the Portland-Salem Metro area of Oregon. That was an increase of 10% in donations over prior year totals! Our goal this year is to increase donations by another 10% and raise over 12,915 lbs!

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.
