Oregon Food Bank awarded $140,000 grant

food available

Oregon Food Bank was recently awarded a $140,000 grant from the Oregon DEQ. These funds will be utilized through May 2021, boosting hunger relief efforts at a time of unprecedented demand while keeping additional food waste out of landfills. 

The pandemic has affected supply chains for produce, lowering demand from restaurants and other customers, so growers and processors are left with excess food.

“Rescuing food that would go to waste has tremendous environmental benefits — and redirecting that food to feed hungry people is especially important right now,” said DEQ Director Richard Whitman. “DEQ is not only supporting Oregon Food Bank with this grant, but also responding to Gov. Kate Brown’s call to reduce food waste and methane emissions from landfills in Oregon.”
