Great Food Drive

 

Thank you for your support!

Thank you to everyone who supported the KGW Great Food Drive this year. Food insecurity risks increase in a pandemic, so the need was greater than ever. A total of 3,607,839 pounds of food was donated surpassing the updated goal of 2,500,000 pounds! The Oregon Food Bank is still accepting donations to help our communities #EmergeStronger in the wake of COVID-19. Please donate if you are able.

Rivermark is a proud sponsor of the KGW Great Food Drive for the 4th consecutive year. Since our involvement starting in 2017, over 6.7 million pounds of food has been donated; providing over 5,600,000 meals to local families.

Food insecurity risks increase in a pandemic, affecting school meal programs, those experiencing homelessness, those without healthcare, and folks living paycheck-to-paycheck in uncertain times. If you have the comfort to contribute any dollar amount to the Oregon Food Bank through the KGW Great Food Drive, every donation is appreciated!

Donate cash or non-perishable food at any of our branches through the end of March or make a donation online.
