Welcome to the Roseburg Food Project!

The Roseburg Food Project is a revolutionary way to collect food. Neighborhood Coordinators enlist their neighbors to become Donors to the FISH of Roseburg Food Pantry.

What Is It?

Neighbors donate a bag of food every two months. We supply the bag and pick up the food! This provides the FISH Food Pantry with a steady supply of food and gives the Donors the satisfaction of making a real difference in the local community.

How the Food Project Works

Roseburg Food ProjectIt's a simple system, built around two types of volunteers:

Neighborhood Coordinators (NCs) agree to organize a small group of their neighbors to become Donors. Their "neighborhood" can be a few houses, several blocks, their work place, or any group they want to coordinate.

Food Donors are neighbors who agree to give food every two months.

When a Neighbor Joins

The NC gives the Donor a reusable green Food Project bag and suggests that they buy one nonperishable grocery item each week.

Then every two months, NCs pick up each bag of food, leave an empty one, and bring the bags to the FISH Food Pantry.  

When is Pickup Day?

Pickup day is the 2nd Saturday of each EVEN month (February, April, June, August, October and December).

Next Pickup Day: Saturday, February 14th
