“There is food here for you.”

Posted January 14th, 2011 by houghtas

Colleen, from Linn-Benton Food Share thanked everyone (for attending the 2001 OSU Food Drive Kick-off) and became choked up while talking about what our efforts make possible. She said she’s amazed when some people come in and apologize for having to be there. The message she wants to be able to tell everyone who comes through their door is “There is food here for you.”

She said more and more they’re getting requests for foods with low sugar, low salt, and gluten-free items.

Linn-Benton Food Share’s goal this year is to be able to distribute five million pounds of food to their network of 70 member agencies. Here in Corvallis that includes the south Corvallis food bank, the north food bank at St. Vincent DePaul at St. Mary’s Church on 25th Street, and the OSU Food Pantry.
