Serving the community
Since 1972, Ashland Emergency Food Bank (AEFB) has provided food to residents of Ashland, Talent and surrounding rural communities. Each month, 500-600 families representing approximately 1,500 individuals come to us for food. Our customers include the unemployed and under-employed, the working poor, students, seniors and homeless. About twenty five percent are children under the age of 18.
Your support matters
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 forty 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.
