How Your Financial Giving Has Helped

Our work:

OSFB is a 100% volunteer organization.

OSFB supplies a standard menu of items to guests at each distribution.

Food donations are wonderful, however, OSFB can purchase more food per $1 than the general public can.

Funds are used to purchase standard items such as eggs, bread and to replenish declining food stocks.

I am a retired veteran living on a fixed income.  Recently, my wife and I got custody of our two teenage grandchildren. Teenagers eat a lot. The food we get from the food bank helps us get through the month.”                                                                                                               ~Ed H.

We moved here in November.  We lived in a hotel with our children for 3 months.  We found out about the food bank after we had spent a weekend eating just plain noodles with our hands because we were so hungry.  We have gotten food as we need it and have always been treated with the utmost respect and your organization of volunteers do not make us feel ashamed to receive help. Thanks so, much.”

My wife takes a lot of medications. If it weren’t for the food bank, we would have to choose between food and her prescriptions.”

Hunger Does Not Wait Until Tomorrow … Your Help Is Needed Today

Hungry families need food year-round. Join our monthly giving program and help ensure that adults and children in our communities have enough healthy food every month of the year.

A donation of just $100/month provides 3 meals a day for an entire year for three people.

Matching Funds:

Many companies will double, or triple charitable contributions made by employees. Ask your HR manger if your company has a matching gift program and have them donate to OSFB.  It will make your gift go twice as far.
