Food Share: Helping Alleviate Hunger in Lincoln County

Ask a child in any Oregon classroom what their favorite time of year is and they’ll likely say
summer! For most kids, it’s an exciting time of year. For too many children in our community,
however, summer is a time when there is little or no food in the house. With schools closing
for the summer months, many families worry about how they will feed their children without the free and reduced-priced school meals they rely on during the school year.
Your generous support can help make a difference in a child’s life this summer. You can help
kids be kids all summer long. A contribution of $25, $50, $100 or $1000 can make all the
difference to a family in need. The mental and physical effects of hunger can be devastating
— especially for a child.
Food Share of Lincoln County can secure and distribute 5 lbs. of food for every dollar received.
A donation of $50.00 can provide 250 lbs. of food for distribution to our partner agencies and
pantries throughout the county. You can contribute by check or donate via credit card online by clicking here.
You can drop by our office anytime M-F from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM if you wish to make your
donation in person, or call us at 541-265-8578 if you’d like more information. You can also ask
us to add your name to our e-mail list to reduce paper and postage.

my husband and I sharing a car and working two jobs”
