Interested in donating larger quantities of food?

Major food donors nourish our community by providing quality food products, which enhance REFB food distributions. The REFB acquires and distributes over 15 million pounds of diverse, culturally appropriate foods, staple pantry items, and fresh, nutrient-rich produce annually. The majority of donated food comes from regional and national manufacturers, retailers, and farmers through our affiliation with other food banks and Feeding America.

Oroweat is currently our largest food donor, donating over 800,000 pounds of premium fresh breads last fiscal year! See a complete list of our food donors here.
