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
Columbia County.

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.

Empty Bowls Online

Empty Bowls Fundraiser

In lieu of our popular annual in-person Empty Bowls Event, we bring you our Empty Bowls Event Shop. A great way to support your regional food bank for Columbia County!

We have again partnered with local artisan Pat Brame to bring you over 200 unique pottery bowls! Since we can't fill you bowl with hot soup this year, Doug from Wild Currant has agreed to share his top-secret Split Pea Soup recipe, we will even give you a bag of split peas too!

Items purchased will need to be scheduled for a pick-up. There will not be the option to ship this product at this time. We will contact you directly to schedule a time for pick-up. We appreciate your support!
