Bend Food Project
The Bend Food Project is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to the year-round collection of non-perishable foods. Their mission is to provide a consistent supply of food to the local food banks who distribute food to food insecure families in the community. The foundation is structured as a network of food donors and coordinators. ‘Neighborhood Coordinators’ collect non-perishable food from their ‘neighborhood food donors’ once every two months. A re-usable green Bend Food Project bag is given by the Neighborhood Coordinators to their neighborhood of food donors. All food collected is then distributed to a local food bank in the Bend/LaPine area.
