Regional Food Bank
Clatsop Community Action operates the CCA Regional Food Bank (RFB) in Clatsop county for the Oregon Food Bank (OFB) Network.
CCA’s RFB fights hunger in Clatsop County by distributing food to 38 partner agencies; including pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other programs assisting low-income people.
The Oregon Food Bank Network is a cooperative statewide coalition of 20 regional food banks working to eliminate hunger and its root causes through distributing donated food to agencies serving low-income people, advocacy, and public education about the underlying causes of hunger.
OFB is a member food bank of Feeding America – the Nation’s Food Bank Network. This affiliation provides access to donations from national food companies. About 15% of the food distributed by OFB comes from donations referred by Feeding America.
