NeighborImpact’s Food Bank is the regional affiliate of Oregon Food Bank

Our Food Bank collects and distributes over 3 million  pounds of food to 47 local agencies in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties and to the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. The emergency food sites that receive food from our Food Bank feed over 25,000 individuals every month.

Through our Food Recovery Program, we recover safe, edible produce, dairy, bread and meat from 17 grocery stores in Deschutes County, sort the food at our warehouse and redistribute it to 47 partner agencies who operate pantries, shelters, emergency food box locations, congregate meal sites and food distribution programs in Central Oregon. No other organization in Central Oregon recovers and redistributes food or addresses waste reduction on our scale: we are the hub of the food distribution network. Our program distributes more fresh food to more locations throughout Central Oregon than any other agency.

Our efforts divert 50 tons of healthy, edible food from landfills every month and increase the quantity, quality and nutritional value of food available. In 2017, we distributed 2.6 million pounds of food; 49% originated from food rescue, local grocers, farmers and gardeners – a greater percent of locally-recovered food than any other food bank in Oregon.

Residents can access food from our Partner Agencies in Bend, Redmond, Sisters, Prineville, Madras, Sunriver and La Pine.
