Food Bank Seeking Permanent Home

ASHLAND, Ore. — The Ashland Emergency Food Bank is launching a campaign so it can continue to help thousands of people in need.

Staff members are hoping to buy the building it currently rents on Clover Lane. The building it uses now was a former fast-food restaurant. They say the space, loading dock and amenities have worked out well.

The food bank is hoping to raise $600,000 by August to stay there. If you’d like to support them you can attend a a kick-off event on March 10th with an open house and pie social.

“We’re really hoping people will contribute to the effort. A dollar, five dollars, whatever level someone is able to participate,” said Manager Pam Marsh.

The food bank has reached 30% of its goal through grants.
