Upcoming Food Drive August 10th, 2024

The Green Bag food drives are an AMAZING volunteer experience, and we'd love for you to join us.  The drives run from 9am-12 noon, shows the incredible spirit of generosity of our community, requires 30-40 volunteers to help us move approximately 30,000 pounds of food, and is completely inspiring!  If you'd like to join us, please follow this link to fill out the participation form.

AND...we have a myriad of other volunteer opportunities.  Please checkout our Volunteer page to learn about the AWESOME volunteer team we have, and for descriptions of the many ways volunteers support our operations.  We look forward to working with you.


We are now accepting food donations, and are always grateful for monetary donations to help us keep our community fed. If you would like a receipt, please bring donations to the food bank Monday through Friday from 9:30am-12:30pm.  Shelf stable food donations may be made off hours at our drop boxes found on the southeast side of the building.  Our most pressing food needs are ever-evolving, so feel free to give us a call at 541-488-9544 or email us at to ask about most needed foods.

Your Support Matters

Since 1972, Ashland Community Food Bank (ACFB) 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. Approximately 35 percent are children under the age of 18.

ACFB 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.


  • Monday through Friday 9:30am — 12:30pm
  • 3rd Saturday of the month from 9:30am — 12:30pm

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.
