100,000 pounds of food is donated during the pandemic by Local Food Projects

During its October food collection drive, the Clark Neighbors Food Project (also known as the Green Bag Food Project) surpassed 104,261 pounds of non-perishable food collected since its inception in July 2017.

Over 86,000 meals have been provided to hungry Clark County neighbors with the food. Because of the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the all-volunteer nonprofits put safety measures in place to keep volunteers and food donors safe and continues to expand the volunteer and donor base to serve more hungry families moving forward.

“There was already a great need for food in our community, especially with the economic impact of COVID-19,” Clark Neighbors Food Project Board President Debbie Nelson said in a news release. “In addition to the hunger for food, we’ve also seen a real hunger for positive and fun connections with neighbors. The Green Bag Food Projects brings people together, strengthens community and shares food… one Green Bag at a time.”

The projects provides sustainable supplies of foods throughout the year to seven food pantries in Clark County: FISH Westside Food Pantry of Vancouver, Neighbors Helping Neighbors in Ridgefield, East Vancouver Community Church Food Pantry, SixEight Food Pantry, FISH or Orchards, North County Community Food Bank in Battle Ground and Inter-Faith Treasure House in Camas-Washougal.
