How FISH Works

front entrance of the FISH Food Pantry in Roseburg, OR

What does it take to run FISH?

Our Food Pantry is run by a board made up of two members from each of the churches and four at-large members.

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.

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

Donations & Grants

Food is brought each Sunday to the 6 churches that run FISH: Faith Lutheran, Roseburg Methodist, First Presbyterian, St. George Episcopal, St. Joseph Catholic, and Unitarian.

Food is donated through the Roseburg Food Project 6 times each year on the second Saturday of even numbered months.

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

Regional Food Bank (UCAN) includes donated food from local grocers and wholesale food from Oregon Food Bank and USDA.

FISH also receives monetary grants from foundations and donations from individuals and business. While the grants must be applied for each year, other donations come in throughout the year.
