In lieu of Empty Bowls this year we have partnered with local artisan Pat Brame to bring you an online pop-up Pottery Shop Boutique!
The Columbia Pacific Food Bank
is the regional food bank for Columbia County.
We deliver food to 38 food pantries, meal programs and produce distribution points throughout
We also operate the Barbara Bullis H.E.L.P.
food pantry in St. Helens.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Columbia Pacific Food Bank is committed first and foremost to the health and safety of our community — to our clients, volunteers, staff and the broader foodstream. We’ve taken a number of important steps to hold these priorities at the center of our response to coronavirus, including rigorous social distancing practices, aggressive sanitization standards, and adjustments in staff and volunteer allocations to better support local food assistance sites.
Our response efforts also require a shift in food sourcing and distribution priorities to keep nutritious food flowing throughout Columbia County. This includes a temporary hold on acceptance of consumer-donated food.
Please consider making a donation and help us wipe out hunger in Columbia County!
We appreciate your support in fighting hunger
in Columbia County.
In lieu of Empty Bowls this year you will see a few fun opportunities to support a local artist and us, your regional food bank for Columbia County!
We have partnered with Pat Brame and Lacey Tolles Photography (two of our favorite community artists) to bring you an online pop-up Pottery Shop Boutique! The link for our shop will be posted here by May 4th. This event will give you the opportunity to purchase handmade pieces made by Pat himself. This is the perfect time to shop for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gifts, or to buy yourself something special. 25% of these sales will be donated to support CPFB.
Items purchased can be picked up at our Milton Way location. There will not be the option to ship this product at this time. We appreciate your support!
For most of us, our world has been turned upside down these days. Some of us continue to work by providing essential services to our communities, while others have the opportunity to work from home. Another slice of the population has been laid off indefinitely or temporarily. For us here at the Columbia Pacific Food Bank, we are being agile and flexible as we tackle new challenges daily.
As your regional food bank, we have historically distributed 12 tons of food weekly to Columbia County. Due to this pandemic, we are setting record-breaking numbers. Last week we delivered 13.5 tons of food. We have new clients that are walking through our doors every day. Our phones are ringing off the hook from folks that have never used a local food pantry and the gratitude in their voices is heard loud and clear. This is a call to action. WE NEED YOUR HELP. During April we are finding the humor in the TP craze and raising funds to WIPEOUT HUNGER in Columbia County. These funds will go directly to purchasing food to serve our community.
So how can you help? For every donation of $25.00 or more, your name will be placed on our TP Wall of Fame at our future home building window. This display of giving will live for the month of April and will be a fun way to pay tribute to all our generous donors and TP fanatics. Please consider a donation in the light of wiping out hunger in Columbia County.
