Oregon Food Bank

1 in 5 Oregonians will rely on a food pantry or soup kitchen in 2016. This is according to a recent survey from the Oregon Food Bank. 

Food For Lane County

Food for Lane County in Eugene is installing a generator Monday. The food bank will be the only one in the state with backup power in case of a large-scale disaster.

Food for Lane County stores about a half million pounds of food in its Eugene warehouse -- about half of it is perishable. The generator will prevent massive food loss and spoilage if there's a power outage.
