Letter: Fighting hunger

Mary Blake re South County Food Bank

Published on November 24, 2017 12:01AM

Dear friends and neighbors: Imagine our community without hunger; we can, and we hope you can, too. Our South County Food Bank, a local food pantry, works seven days a week to provide emergency food and hope to over 1,000 community members each month. Each year, over 250,000 pounds of food is coordinated, collected, sorted, set out and individually distributed, one on one, by volunteers to our most vulnerable friends and neighbors living in our area.

We need your help now to continue this essential work. For the first time, we are sending out a call to action brochure, in the mail, to all residents in South County. Please take the time to read it and get to know the good work of your food pantry and the enormous challenge we are facing around the most basic need for any person: nutritious food.

For more information about our good work, stop by our new building at 2041 N. Roosevelt Drive, call 503-738-9800, go online to or follow us on Facebook at

We sincerely thank you for your continued help and support as we work toward a community without hunger.

Mary Blake

Board member, South County Food Bank
