MEDFORD, Ore. — For every Thursday in April, the Human Bean says it will donate $1 from every drink sold to ACCESS, Jackson County's regional food bank.

With the major economic impact caused by COVID-19, food banks in Oregon have seen rising demand and a drop in donations.

"The COVID-19 pandemic and its associated devastation on local business has had a tremendous negative impact on our community," Human Bean said in a statement. "Local organizations that have a long and successful history of helping families and seniors through economic crisis are seeing unprecedented demand for help within our communities."

ACCESS has seen demand for food assistance rise about 60 percent over the last several weeks, distributing almost 100,000 pounds of food each week. That need only continues to grow.

The food bank serves an estimated one out of every four residents of Jackson County, helping more than 52,000 people in 2019.

"The Human Bean has a long history of partnering with local organizations and giving back," the company said. "We continue to focus on providing authentic human connections … with a bean on top."

Human Bean's goal is to provide more than 60,000 meals for the food insecure with this fundraiser. For the rest of April, thhe company says it will donate $1 to ACCESS for every drink sold on Thursdays. ACCESS says that each $1 donation can provide four meals.

"Together we can make a difference," Human Bean said.
