MEDFORD, Ore. -- Today Sherm's Thunderbird and Food 4 Less grocery stores will help feed thousands of local families with a special semi-trailer delivery. At 11 a.m. the Olsrud family will deliver 23,000 pounds of food to the ACCESS warehouse in Medford.
ACCESS says the Olsrud family has donated an entire trailer full of food every year since 2000. They are long-time supporters of ACCESS, and the organization says the family was instrumental in helping build the ACCESS Community Kitchen.
ACCESS adds that hunger in Jackson County is a growing problem. It says it's faced by children, families, seniors, veterans and others. In the 2017-18 fiscal year, ACCESS distributed more than four million pounds of food to Jackson County residents.
