FISH of Roseburg reduces hunger in our community and responds with compassion to people in crisis.
The FISH of Roseburg food pantry is in need of one or more volunteers to help on Monday afternoons. They are looking for someone who can help with boxing up produce for the clients. The volunteer needs to be able to lift 30 to 40 pounds in order to bring the boxes of produce out of the cooler and lift them onto the work table. The help is needed from approximately 12:30 to 4:00. If you could help, please reply to this post or call 541-672-5242 and let them know how they can get in touch with you. Thank you for considering this need.
The FISH of Roseburg food pantry remains open to serve the low-income families that are food insecure. We have made changes at the FISH Food Pantry, giving food boxes instead of clients being able to do their own grocery-shopping. Only volunteers and staff are allowed inside the Pantry at this time. Please dress for the weather.
Preliminary results for the August collection of donated food for the Roseburg Food Project are in. 62 Neighborhood Coordinators collected 10,450 pounds of food from 620 Food Project donors. Thank you to all those who helped with the collection of the green bags. The next collection of green bags for the Roseburg Food Project will be Saturday October 9th.
Thank you to Grocery Outlet for supporting Fish in their Independence from Hunger campaign during the month of July.
The board members of the FISH of Roseburg food pantry would like to send a huge “Thank you” to everyone in this community who donated to the food pantry since the beginning of the pandemic and quarantine. We are so very grateful to the individuals, businesses, foundations, churches, and groups who have reached out to support us during this challenging time. It is truly amazing.
And a special shout out to the hundreds of food donors who are part of the Roseburg Food Project for their flexibility and generosity.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support.
