Food Project Celebrates Success

MEDFORD, Ore. — Saturday marks the two-year anniversary of the Medford Food Project and organizers¬† say the program has made a big impact on the community. Saturday more than 100 neighborhood coordinators collected bright green bags of food from about 2,600 Medford households.

The campaign started several years ago in Ashland with the Ashland Food Project but has since spread throughout the Rogue Valley and beyond.

“It’s now in Eagle Point, Jacksonville participates and we have pilot programs in California and one in Olympia, Washington and we’re hoping to roll out all across the United States,” Jane Maynard.

Collections happen on the second Saturday of every other month.
