Food Share: Helping Alleviate Hunger in Lincoln County

 

We are so grateful to you for supporting our distribution warehouse, pantries and partner agencies.  Thanks to you, your 2018 donations have touched the lives of thousands of individuals and families in Lincoln County.  Whether it was one time, every month or every week, we have fed the hungry.

Some highlights of what you helped us accomplish in 2018 are as follows:

  • Distributed over 1 million pounds of food to 1700 households, nearly 163,000 pounds was fresh produce.
  • Reduced food waste by recovering and distributing 150,000 pounds of healthy nutritious food from food industry partners.
  • Processed and distributed 2400 pounds of donated fresh fish from the bycatch and hatcheries.

While our primary responsibility is to distribute emergency food, you’re also helping us address hunger at its root cause through education and empowerment. Your donation supported two Cooking Matters farmers’ market tours in Newport, 14 Cooking Matters classes, a new mobile pantry at Big Creek Senior Apartments, and a new 18-foot refrigerated truck to help us expand our fresh produce distribution.

Please call us at 541-265-8578 if you ever have questions. We’re here to help. I’m so grateful for your generosity in 2018 and on behalf of Food Share staff and volunteers, I thank you for caring.

Sincerely,

Nancy Mitchell
Executive Director
