Did you know that on average, pre pandemic, 1 in 4 Oregonians faced hunger and 1 of 5 children experienced food insecurity ?
Not only that but food insecurity rates rose nearly 35% in the last year across Oregon! In 2020 Coos and Curry counties were are ranked among the top 4 counties with the highest food insecurity rates.
Here at the South Coast Food Share we do our best to feed our hungry community and help to break down the systemic barriers to healthy nutrition.
Food and funds donated to fight hunger and feed hope are a major part of how we make this happen
You can bring shelf stable foods to the CAN-DO Food Drive on Wednesday April 20th, 2022! The Can-Do Food Drive will be set up in the front parking lot of the Coos Bay Fred Meyer located at 1020 S 1st St, Coos Bay, OR 97420
The South Coast Food Share is able to source approximately 7 pounds of food for every dollar donated and that the average meal is 1.2 pounds?
This means that for every one dollar you donate you are providing approximately 5 to 6 meals to a hungry child, family or individual in our community.
This is why every dollar counts!
You can also call our donation line 541-435-7092 between 8AM and 5PM on 4/20/2022 to make a donation over the phone or mail your donation to 1855 Thomas Ave, Coos Bay Oregon, 97420 Attention South Coast Food Share.
