The Ashland Emergency Food Bank was founded 45 years ago by a group of churches who believed that no one in our community should go to bed hungry. They pooled their efforts from their individual congregations and began distributing food to people in need.
Over four decades, much has changed. We serve many more people and our numbers continue to rise each year. We are now an independent nonprofit organization, and we own and operate our own building. But one thing has remained constant – our mission. That is, to provide food, free of charge, to residents of Ashland, Talent and surrounding rural communities, and to do so in a way that conveys respect and dignity for those being served.
We are proud to have donated and continue to help sponsor this important organization.
