Ever wonder what goes into a food box from Columbia River Food Bank? This is a question we often get asked by folks visiting us looking for food assistance as well as our supporters and community partners. We have a handy guide shown below that guides our food box packers on how much and what to pack into a box. The amount of food support is based on the number of people in a household. If you are in need of food assistance, please do not hesitate to visit the food bank or your nearest food pantry. You can find a list of food pantries and programs in Columbia County under the Get Assistance tab in our website menu.
