FISH reduces hunger in our community and responds with compassion to people in crisis.
During April the Roseburg Food Project collected 9,806 pounds of food from 594 donors coordinated by 69 neighborhood coordinators. The next Roseburg Food Project pick up day is SATURDAY JUNE 13th. See you there!!
The FISH Food Pantry is currently needing volunteers on Wednesday afternoons (1:30 - 3:45) and Thursday mornings (9:00 - 11:45). We need both substitute volunteers (people who can step in on short notice), and more regular, on-going (2 - 4 days per week) volunteers. Tasks vary. No experience necessary. To be on the substitute list email Joe Russell our Volunteer Coordinator at JosephERussell3@gmail.com. To become an on-going volunteer call Vern Haas our Executive Director at 541-673-9804. The FISH Food Pantry is located at 405 Jerry's Drive off NE Stephens just north of Costco in Roseburg. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
A big THANK YOU to the students at Jo Lane Middle School for the gifts of time and food to the FISH. Jo Lane Honor Society students regularly help unload and sort food for the Roseburg Food Project on collections days and the students in the Jo Lane PE classes donated over 1,300 pounds of food in December. You're the BEST!!!
The Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation awarded a grant of $10,000 to FISH. What a blessing!!
