In addition to partnering with over 100 local pantries and meal sites in our area, Marion Polk Food Share directly manages pantries in Woodburn and Grand Ronde. Volunteering at one of our pantries is a fantastic way to make a direct impact on hunger in those communities!
AWARE Food Bank is one of the largest pantries in the Food Share’s network and is the primary source of food relief in the Woodburn area. With support from our local community, AWARE collects and distributes nutritious food for children, adults, and seniors. In addition to its pantry, AWARE conducts mobile distributions to reach migrant agricultural workers and senior citizens in northern Marion County.
Iskam MәkhMәk-Haws (Chinuk Wawa for “house where you get food”) is a community gathering place in Grand Ronde. Iskam MәkhMәk-Haws is a partnership between the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and Marion Polk Food Share that was created to meet emergency food needs in the community. All are welcome.
