Linn Benton Food Share believes food has the power to change lives and transform communities. Where
hunger exists, they aim to eliminate it. Whether you are looking for help with food or wanting to give back to your community, Linn Benton Food Share is the place to turn. Through a unique network of 68 local, non-profit partner agencies, Linn Benton Food Share (a program of Community Services Consortium) delivers over five million pounds of food to those in need. Their network includes emergency food pantries, meal programs, gleaning groups and other
non-profit agencies that serve low-income populations. Linn Benton Food Share addresses hunger with more than food, investing in educational and community building opportunities to enhance relationships and resiliency to the benefit of all.
