Relieving Hunger in the Columbia Valley


Since the pandemic, food bank use continues to rise. In 2023 we supported a 33% rise in hampers distributed. Nearly one-third of these recipients were children. In the first half of 2024 we have already seen a 37.5% increase in hampers distributed, indicating the critical nature of our work.

The Columbia Valley Food Bank provides needed support for individuals and families whose current needs are not being met by society.

While our ultimate goal is to go out of business because society no longer needs this service and ensure everyone’s right to food is realized. In the interim we will continue to marshal the donations provided to us for distributing healthy food and support in a responsible manner.

We want to thank our volunteers and all those we serve, for their continued commitment to keeping each other healthy and safe. We request those visiting our facility adhere to protective measures such as frequent hand washing and mask wearing when deemed appropriate.
