Food Boxes may contain canned goods, fresh produce, bread, and frozen meat. While the food in a box varies, generally there is enough for three to twelve nutritionally balanced meals depending on the size of the family.

Along with the move to our new location in 2015 came necessary changes for our Distribution Center/Bingen Food Bank. 

At our old location we had been using a worn out tractor trailer as our freezer. Though it had worked for many years, it was unsustainable and we knew that we couldn’t move it. We were able to run a successful fundraiser and raised all of the funds necessary to purchase a new walk-in freezer which is now located inside the Food Bank. 

Despite recent economic growth in our region, the Food Bank has been working overtime to alleviate the problem of hunger in our community. Because we live in an area of natural abundance, people are often surprised to discover the number of people who suffer from food insecurity in our community. 

With our new freezer in place, and our gains in efficiency in both electricity usage and manpower, we’re now better able to serve our clients. We would like to extend a heartfelt Thank You to all of our wonderful donors without whom the new freezer would not have been possible!
