New Storage Building Capital Campaign
A Cornerstone of our Community
AEFB is in need of additional storage space to store the food we distribute. Our Board of Directors has initiated a capital campaign to construct a storage building on our property. We invite you to join in this effort. If you agree we provide an essential community service to those in need, please consider participating in growing our capital fund.

Your Support Matters
Since 1972, Ashland Emergency Food Bank (AEFB) has provided food to residents of Ashland, Talent and surrounding rural communities. Each month, over 600 families representing approximately 1,700 individuals come to us for food. Our customers include the unemployed and under-employed, the working poor, students, seniors and those with disabilities and the homeless. Approximatelyt thirty five percent are children under the age of 18.
AEFB is supported by a coalition of faith-based organizations, along with the community at large. Church members, school children, local residents and neighborhood businesses donate food to us directly and volunteer their labor. Ashland Food Project's green bag collections comprise about a 35 percent of our total contributions.
Thanks to the generosity of our community, we are able to provide each individual or family who visits us with enough groceries to provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for two to three days.

A Giant Thank You
Every morning when we open the doors we greet a line of customers and we often hear their stories - both of triumph and despair. We are here to support our neighbors through difficult times. Food is fundamental: No one is prepared to tackle other life challenges when the belly is empty or the children unfed. Your support makes this work possible. Our heartfelt thanks to the community, for continually stepping up to help.
