HOPE Oregon City FAQ

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

What types of foods are available?

Oregon Food Bank guidelines suggest we give enough food to feed each individual for three to five days. Foods normally included are: canned and/or boxed food items, cooking oil, margarine, eggs and other refrigerated items, frozen meats, fresh produce, bread, desserts and other bakery products, and fresh or shelf stable milk. When available, we have food items for specific diets, such as gluten-free, diabetic, or vegetarian.

What are the guidelines for recipients?

Our only requirement for receiving food is that the individual meet the USDA income guidelines (i.e., during 2022 a household of two qualifies if the household monthly income is less than $4,578) or if the household receives SNAP or WIC benefits.

    Do you accept donations of garden vegetables? If not, do you know where I can donate my extra produce? Mostly I have extra cucumbers right now but should hopefully have tomatoes later.
    Thank you

      Sorry to be slow in answering your question. All pantries are delighted to accept donations of garden vegetables. Donations may be delivered to the pantry when it is open. If this is not convenient, contact the individual church to see when someone is available to accept your produce. Thank you for thinking of us. Clients always appreciate fresh veggies and fruit!
