How FISH Works

front entrance of the FISH Food Pantry in Roseburg, OR

What does it take to run FISH?

Our Food Pantry is overseen by a Board of Directors made up of two members from each of the six sponsor churches and four at-large members. Our Executive Director is responsible for day-to-day operations.

We’re open Monday and Wednesday from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Thursday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

In order to operate, we require the service of 70+ volunteers each week. Including our Board, the FISH is 98.5% volunteer-driven

We employee an Executive Director, 1 part time assistant, and 1 part time warehouse worker.

Food is collected at church food drives held 2 or 3 times per year at local grocery stores.
