Columbia Pacific Food Bank (CPFB) is currently accepting applications for new board members committed to improving the quality of life in Columbia County. CPFB’s volunteer Board of Directors represent various geographical areas throughout Columbia County. Membership comes from our low-income client base, local government, seniors, agriculture, the community-at-large and local businesses. Terms will begin January 1, 2015. Board members serve 3 year terms and meet monthly. The mission of CPFB is “to alleviate hunger by creating access to healthy food and resources” because no one should go hungry in Columbia County.
CPFB is embarking on a five year strategic plan of expanding capacity including replacing the current warehouse among other initiatives. “This is an important time in the history of CPFB and an exciting time to be on the Board” says Ken Gates, President of the Board of Directors.
CPFB is the regional food bank based in St. Helens and a member of the Oregon Food Bank Network. CPFB distributes food to over 20 partner agencies (senior centers, food pantries, community meals programs, etc.) throughout Columbia County.
