MEDFORD, Ore. — The Medford Food Project collected 21,000 pounds of non-perishable food for local food banks Saturday. The last collection in June totaled more than 24,000 pounds of food and project organizers hope to collect 300,000 pounds of food in Jackson County by the end of the year.
“Typically food drives are one time. The Medford Food Project is every two months. Donors donate every two months, so it’s a steady stream of food that the food pantries can really rely on,” says Neighborhood Coordinator Scott Perry.
