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 2018 a household of two qualifies if the household monthly income is less than $2,538) or if the household receives SNAP or WIC benefits.
