2021 Fight Hunger
Join us as we team up with the Oregon Food Bank, Portland Timbers, and Portland Thorns to FIGHT TO END HUNGER in Oregon!
Throughout the month of October, a portion of every cider purchase at participating grocery stores will go directly to helping their mission to eliminate hunger and its root cause… because no one should be hungry.
The Oregon Food Bank Network worked with nearly 1.7 million community members over the course of the past year

We all know how challenging the last 18 months have been. Nearly 1 in 5 have faced food insecurity in the pandemic’s wake. Thousands of us have lost friends and loved ones. According to Oregon State University, the total number of Oregonians that currently are experiencing – or are likely to soon experience – food insecurity, has doubled. Meaning, as many as 1 in 4 Oregonians or an additional 540,000-800,000 of our neighbors are turning to local food pantries, many for the first time. Along with food insecurity, the unemployment rate in Oregon has doubled, it is especially important that we look to one another for support. We will emerge stronger, together.
