Food Bank Purchases Building

Food Bank BuildingASHLAND, Ore. — A food bank serving hundreds of people in Ashland will now have a permanent place to continue serving those in need.

The Ashland Emergency Food Bank raised over $400,000 to purchase the building it’s currently in. Two years ago employees moved into the building that used to be a restaurant.

The board president says local businesses, the city of Ashland, and other community members, helped to raise the money.

“We even had clients who came here that gave whatever little money they had on them to the food bank when they’re also getting food from us. So, that meant it was something important,” said Board President Greg Lemhouse.

Every month, the food bank sees more families coming in needing food. If you’d like to help the center accepts cash or any food donations.
